Looks like a standart scissor switch keyboard with a wood case and keycaps. But i have to agree, it looks classy.

Would think it would need a durable finish so the keys and case don't discolor from your hand oil.

The Verge just posted about this:

http://www.theverge.com/2013/7/5/4494966/oree-wooden-keyboard-gets-pop-up-tokyo-workshop

Basically The Verge is blind to Apple Designs. They are convinced that 1 Infinte Loop can do no wrong.

Dont get me wrong, apple makes beautiful computers, they just make **** keyboards.

Love the caption: "This is not made out of unnatural materials like plastic or metal ó it's a living thing," says Takata. "It's not static, it moves, it grows."

I can just imagine waking up one morning to find a few shoots growing out the side of the keyboard.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I'm working on a Gh60 case right now. I think I'll be doing a phantom as well, but I'm not sure yet

Durp.  Make it out of micarta and hand oil will "improve" it. :))

Also- EWWWWWWWW it's made for Macs and you buy it with that croissant money (Ä).

Looks dull. They could have at least picked a better wood to do this with - ebony or snake wood would have been killer. Ten times more expensive yes, but killer.

My keyboards grow mold in my basement, so I don't see why these wooden keyboards wouldn't grow either.
