Any other users out there that are actually starting to type faster and with less effort than ever before? I'm starting to wonder if i wouldn't want my nesxt keyboard to just be a big piece of glass ... Drift is sometimes a problem and there won't be true touch typing until they can tactilely tell me where my fingers are (I have to watch the keyboard to make sure im not drifting) but MAN am I starting to type fast on this thing.

Apple has a couple patents out there for things like this ... Keyboards that will change on demand under the glass and such ... Im starting to really see the value of it.

Yep. I think logitech is releasing or just did release a flat panel keyboard.

I think drift can be handled with a very small dot of silicone on the f and j keys. I may try it. Make two small dots that can be pealed off. He'll it's probably a product waiting to happen. A sheet of little dots you can peel off and stick to your touchscreen for tactile positioning. He'll even some games could benefit from it.

Don't be surprised if you'll soon start to see more optimized keyboard layouts that qwerty in use because now it's just about bits where the letters are instead of plastic.
