Man I've been waiting impatiently for years now! And since learning a new language boy this keyboard would really come in handy. Change the keys with a click of the mouse to a Japanese keyboard layout :o

Eh, thought maybe someone else here would be interested in this product so I posted here. Hopefully okay to post something like this in this forum section.

They predict it to come out mid-late 2006.. hopefully that timeframe is still accurate.

Yea, what is even more better, it's open-source. There won't be any problems getting this keyboard working with every program and OS in existence. Would go nicely with my razor copperhead mouse :). I agree with switching to japanese layout, I bet it's faster to type the correct kanji using hiragana directly instead of typing out the roomaji.
