How good is one of those flexible keyboards?

I saw one of these when I'm looking around at one store earlier:



It looks quite cool. Anyone used them? How good are these? I have plan to move my old pc downstair to where I work.

I see these at geeks.com all the time for much less. Something tells me the tactile feedback (or relative lack thereof) would throw me off.

The "geek" factor does count, but there's little space downstairs, and it's quite a dusty environment.

Anyway, those link I gave has some other geeky keyboards too. Too bad the price is very high.

Well we use the model posted above in some of our studios. Since it's soft it's quiet. That means Hosts can type messages while ON AIR without the tapping sounds going over the mic. Usually hosts have to communicate with the call screener, Producer, or even answer messages and e-mails from online listeners while on air. Our studio is set up whee the host is in the same room as the board operator and ofte we need to type things too so the soft keyboard works out great. I've heard so many radio shows where the host is taking a call and while the caller is talking the host is furiously typing away. But that's not only annoying, but it exposes the fact that Radio Shows really don't give a shit about what you have to say when you call in.
