I have one of these. It's an excellent keyboard. My model switches
between QWERTY & Dvorak in hardware. It can also remap keys & even
record macros, though I've never used that feature much.
(I've done a lot of customization, but it's mostly been at the
software end. Inspired by this:
though my layout isn't particularly like his, & I haven't set up much
in Emacs itself. In my XKB layout I have Home & Page Up set to Hyper,
and End & Page Down set to mode shift for typing extended characters.)
The various key-screen keyboards seem like a nice idea, but I have
difficulty imagining a situation where it'd be useful enough to
justify the costs. I just don't look at the keycaps that much. I
guess it's handy if you're typing on a foreign keyboard layout that
isn't phonetically based on your native one & which you haven't
learned to touch-type on.
