Looks neat, but I doubt that it's intended for typing. So why bother with the slanted typewriter layout? If you end up looking at the keys all the time, and not pressing them as often as you would be when typing, why bother with physical keys at all? A big touch-screen would be infinitely more customizeable and much cheaper to boot.

It's made for broadcasting, and it is neat looking.

I agree with Whiskey...A touch screen would be much more practical.

Besides, if they have to charge $28k, they are people who don't know what they're doing.

it's a bargain. Fairlight used to charge $50K when they made music keyboards.
I trolled Geekhack and all I got was an eponymous SPOS.
