Mad respect for the guys that create those things.  But damn, I'd never use one.

They usually go for over a thousand anyway. it's not hard at all to make your own variation. I'm working on a detailed tutorial.

Same here (well, except maybe for the "mad respect" part).  ;)

I don't "get" those keyboards at all.  Nothing about those keyboards seems conducive to fast, accurate typing.  I don't even really think they look all that cool.

Check this one out. It's absolutely ridiculous. Bonus points for having used a Model M and actually making a beautiful looking mod: http://steampunkworkshop.com/keyboard.shtml

It went for $510.

Not bad for a rubber dome 'board. :)
