Its hard to tell at this point how much ease-of use that these keyboards may have, but because of the general concept of adjusting to the spread of your hand they will be very nice. One thing about the concept that is great, is that you could purchase keysets for different applications and arrange them how you like. A generic FPS game keyset could have keys with pictures of inventory standard to FPS games, and movement keys shaped for ease of use. While a keyset for a photoshop type program could have keys for switching through layers, applying commonly used effects and toggling between things quickly. News.com has the full story
