BeeRaider radial keyboard

This came up in conversation last night as a random discovery from a Google image search:

https://www.beeraider.com/products/

It will be a challenge to update Keyboard Layout Editor to allow putting that layout into it!

Wow, I don't even know what to think of this! It is pretty cool looking - has anyone here tried anything like this?

I dunno. Is this really the ideal layout for bee raiding?

Solenoid: ON!
Mind-boggling how someone could actually have invested money into this project!! Even more so how they could claim in their advertising video that "Martina" actually managed to top her QWERTY speed within eight hours of using this keyboard. You'd think that she'd only ever used QWERTY for half an hour, but apparently she's used it for 25 years prior...

Argh, all that hand movement! Aaaargh, having to use 18+ keys with your index finger rather than 12, including all the most frequent ones (in the "optimized" layout)!

Really makes you wonder how many pints of Guiness they'd had when coming up with this - and how they coerced their investors... What might be the market share of people who only use their index fingers for typing?

That keyboard... :shock: If the aliens land in my backyard, that's what I would expect to see on the console of their spaceship.

Gosh, I just hope they don't say, "Take us to your leader!" :oops:

This sure would make for a nice prop in a sci-fi film. Just add some stickers with alien hieroglyphics.

I remember that there was an insect-killing spray named "Raider".
