So they tried this once and it didn’t work, probably because it doesn’t look any higher quality than taking the tiles from a Scrabble game and gluing them to your current keyboard. Then again it could have been the $400 price tag.
Well they are giving it another go with kits this time. That’s right, you get a discount of about $110 off of that $400 price tag, but the catch is you have to put it together yourself.
The new kits will be $290 each and should be available soon in Japan. Personally, if I have to do work to build my own keyboard, I’d rather it be a steam punk one, so make a kit for that and I might buy it.
