    Cute, but I don't think it'd work well in real life. I type pretty quickly, and the lack of the feel of real keys under the fingers would screw up my speed.

    They are suppose to be very accurate. It is an interesting concept none the less. Not to mention all of the other possible applications that they mention. As soon as they perfect the Rolling Up Monitor (http://www.csmonitor.com/2004/0108/p14s01-stct.html)
    that could all fit in your pocket. Before you know it we have full size computers that fit in our pockets

    They're great - unless you want to type with them. Can't touch type at all and I'm not sure where you heard about their accuracy, but the one I had (for about 3 days) missed keystrokes all the time.
