Some pretty cool things happenings in my hometown of just over 8k people just a stones throw away from Canadia. This company is currently hanging out at CES in Vegas to unveil their new computer accessories seen here...stealthy keyboards. Thought some of you might like to take a look. Enjoy!

I like it! (It's not too far from ideas I've seen in sci-fi for 20 years, however it's nice to see a nice unit come to fruition)

I wonder what it costs. (If you have to ask, it's probably too much.)

These guys are right up the road from where I work. I'm thinking about making a pilgrimage over there this afternoon and see if they might offer tours and get more info.... might even drop off a resume. I remember seeing a Kickstarter project that they put out about 6-8 months ago. Apparently it was highly successful! I'll post more when I find out.

I dunno......
LOL, it's cool looking and all.
But, I am 55yo, and still hunt down the original IBM 42h1292 clicky keyboards when I can still find them at a reasonable price.
So far, I have always been able to keep a couple in reserve. When I don't get nutz for certain reasons, and throw one against a distant wall, they can last for years. And you know how much I post.

Yeah, but, the clicky keyboards don't have a choice of 16 million customizable colors!!

And you know how much I post.


That and it molds so nicely to your hands.

Ohhhhhhhhh, you dont have to pay for stupid cans of compressed air to clean it either...MX cost savings right there!! Besides, it just LOOKS cool!
