Just click "Fun"

Just click "Fun"... and you're ready to rock. I'm guessing this is an idea that came from Japan.

Silly me, I was looking for a link on the site to "fun". Alas, it is nowhere to be found.

That's what I was expecting to do as well monju. But in all seriousness,how could one type with all those keys in the way?

Ahh... (sorry) I meant that there's actually a "fun" button on the keyboard. Does YOUR keyboard have a button marked fun? All I've got is boring stuff... "ScrolLk," "SysRq" (whatever that is... it ain't "fun.")

Man, I wish my keyboard had 'Happy', 'Sad', and 'Neutral' buttons. Although, is there some kind of subliminal messaging associated with the link between the 'sad' key and the 'home' key?? Hmm..

My keyboard has a "naked" button. Man, macs rule!

Singapore, apparently.

Seems like while you were writing your really good paper, your palms would make it go "beep boop boop beep boop"...9

"This keyboard is a piece of junk. I think I'll click on 'Return.'"

That keyboard (in the computer and musical sense) is worst of both worlds:

1) the computer keyboard is too far away from your body, which will most likely cause long-term strain
2) the piano keyboard has miniature keys, which might be useful for playing a couple of notes, but other than that it not practical for any sort of musical endeavor.

I see that it comes with a key cover/wrist rest.

2) the piano keyboard has miniature keys, which might be useful for playing a couple of notes, but other than that it not practical for any sort of musical endeavor.

Actually Chick Corea is using one on his current world tour! FACT!!!!

Lighten up! (Jeez what a bunch of over critical dip-wads.)

Over-critical should be hyphenated.

Technically, one would say overly critical.

Commas, people. Commas.

From the photos on the website, it looks like it is being marketed for small-fingered kids.

Also, I have seen novelty buttons like these at stores in the mall: PANIC, EJECT, BEER, oops.
