Relisted this at $350, which is probably a more realistic price. I hope.

It's sad to see that our devices aren't getting higher prices anymore. I guess it mostly indicates a shrinking user base; too few people who understand and appreciate the devices.

Interesting that the auction ended on the same day as Kare mentioned the relisting. Guess the original price point did work.

I'm not surprised at the lowing prices. It's been 9 years since Fingerworks was sold to Apple, so the number of people who actually know what this technology is and can do is ever shrinking.

Also, based on what I can see in current ergonomic keyboard movement, things are going in the total opposite direction. A lot of it is concentrated on mechanical keyswitches, but at least the tenting, the columnular layout, and the larger usage of the thumb are there. I don't think there will be an easy way to reconcile mechanical keyswitches with gesturing. I think the best we can hope for is a good gesture-based trackpad, like the Magic Trackpad in combination with the BetterTouchTool enhancement app. Of course, this is limited to OS X, since enhancing gestures in Windows appears to be *hard* at this time.
