I think I'd rather wait on the TextBlade than the following!
I scanned through the things they had and, frankly, I'm not impressed. But for the cost, you could by 6 Textblades and have a dollar left over!
I guess there is a place for it, especially if you are permanently limited to using one hand, but I wonder how much of even that might be doable by customizing the TB. After all, their main method of getting the other half of the keyboard is to hold down the space bar. So it seems that you could recreate at least the basic letters on the TB as with this half keyboard. I suspect most of the rest of it (numbers, symbols, etc) could be done with the other layers
Besides the vast price difference, even they admit your typing speed will go down. And they have some rather, to me, awkward ways of accessing some things.
I guess it is fairly small, but I suspect not as small as a TB (or as light!). And when packed up, the TB is far, far smaller. I think, in most cases, a smaller keyboard is only a big deal if it is easier to carry or makes it easier to reach keys in use. In the case of the TB, it fulfills both and without sacrificing feel, etc. With this half keyboard, the three rows may make it easier to reach than traditional keyboards, but still considerably more stretch than a TB and not as convenient to carry.
Hmmm, just had a thought. You could customize the TB to use one side for text, but still have the whole other side for anything special you want (and in multiple layers there too)! Granted, the angle wouldn't be ideal, but it may be superior to have some things always there instead of going through complicated accessing steps.
But I'm just shocked at the price!
Oh, I know, for some the only thing that matters is that the half keyboard is already shipping. Which is a fair point. I just happen to think it is a temporary one.
