This was taken from a survey that is going around. Seems like Kinesis is looking to get into the gaming market. If only they'd mechanical up their Maxim board, no?

It seems they plan on retailing it at $179 though. At least it has some bang for the buck, considering it has most of the things we would want in a custom built board.

Attached is the advert for the board...

I like this thread better. Because I never even saw the other one. Wonder how this compares to the Matias Ergo Pro… obviously!

It pretty much is, but it's nice to have a Cherry mechanical ergonomic keyboard that isn't an astronomically priced Cherry MX 5000, or a matrix-styled board (TEK or ErgoDox).
