Fairlight's $28,000 XYNERGI Keyboard

I **** near choked when I saw this $28,000 keyboard at Engadget today. Yeah, it is kinda cool and all but not when it costs as much as a brand new full sized truck. Hit the link above for a video showing the keyboard in action.

I bet the buttons are hard to press. Like buttons you see on Video Arcade Games.
