A new Keyboard - SEABOARD!

It allows you to bend the pitch, volume and timbre of each key you touch.  It is very intuitive to the touch, sensing the slightest movement.  Developed by London tech start-up Roli, "The Seaboard" has the shape of a familiar keyboard, but the keys are made from a flexible, soft material. for intuitive, fine control, as opposed to blunt instruments like the mouse, or joystick.
This technology has implications for medicine, gaming, anything associated with gestures and wanting to have that physical connection with the technology.
I'm not sure if I'd like the feel of the keyboard after so many years of playing on a traditional keyboard!  It sure would be fun to experiment with though!!
