That's the price for the spacebar OLED only kybd... They have like 5 versions, the one with all OLED keys is still $1.5k.

ROFL 500 for just having the Spacebar as a display! ::

Also are there actually any vids of this thing in action?

If I know the software works well and the keyboard will last for awhile I wouldnt mind getting one. But im scared it would mess up and I would get screwed. (1500 version)
