Keyboard for UberGeeks: Blank.

If you are an elite programmer who can write sophisticated code under tight deadlines, someone who makes impossible projects possible; or a Silver Web Surfer your colleagues turn to when they need IT advice: this keyboard is for you.

Shouldn't your keyboard reflect your status as one of the elite? We think so!

it's a great idea, but the keyboard is kinda expensive ($80!)
edit: yeah, it's a ripoff  :lol:

LOL, what a ripoff.
You can make yourself a "daskeyboard" in 10 minutes and it'll cost you less than 10$:

lol, it's not even ergonomic I mean if someone wants to type faster you'd get a non-standard more ergonomic keyboard, which i'm thinking of getting ;)

they assume that by not looking at you're keyboard you'll memorize the letters faster and thus type faster.

Re: Keyboard for UberGeeks: Blank.

The only things that is maybe nice about this KB,  is if you look at it from the side the buttons are diposed in a curve, that may make typing easyer. Also the "weighted buttons" thing is a good idea, since you have less force in your small fingers.
Yet I dont know if I would like these features. I may be more at ease with my good ol genius wazwaz keyboard.
