Question Have you encountered an "OrbiTouch keyless keyboard"? -- Please tell me about it.


Anybody ever used, or know someone who uses, the OrbiTouch Keyless Keyboard?

I'm interested in this thing, and want to know what your experience has been with it.

I'd like to know about build quality, real-life ease of use, physical benefits of use, meta/combo-key-stroke functionality, built-in mouse functionality, etc.

It's kinda pricy at $400.00 CDN but if it does what it claims to do, I think it'd be worth the investment.

An aside: they're obviously in tight with MS, which you can tell if you check out the FAQs:

Q-1: "When using windows, how do I press CRTL ALT DEL?"
A: irrelevant.

Q-12:Does it work in Linux?
A: The orbiTouch® has been tested extensively in all versions of Microsoft Windows. While it has not been tested by us with computers running Linux, the orbiTouch® should work in any environment that supports a standard PC keyboard and mouse.

orbiTouch keyless keyboard.

Thanks!

If it was a bit cheaper then $400, I'd buy one right now! Well, it'd have to be quite a bit less then $400...
