    That's pretty impressive. Might try when it's out. Swype has really spoiled me with only needing to use one finger to text. I tried going back to the multi-touch keyboard and my non-swyping hand had no clue what to do. :p

    I think this keyboard has some very cool concepts though. +1

    Seriously? Did anyone watch that video and NOT want to try this keyboard? I love Swype but I would definitely give that a whirl.

    Yeah, I'm definitely on board here. If it works as well as it looks? Oh man. I might give up Swype too.

    This looks absolutely amazing. This definitely looks like a contender for swype. This and swype on a phone would make it a typing machine. I love swype and all , but when I have two hands free i like to use both hands to type. I WANT IT!

    Folks, it is slick and insanely cool, but it wont replace swype to me but I would try it out. I love the no keyboard typing. Pretty sick for those who had to take typing classes.

    Following them on twitter, that looks to good to be true, i hate how much of the screen the keyboard takes up so if my small brain can get around typing without a keyboard, that would rock lol

    Hope it lives up to the video, swype also looks fool proof in the video and that quickly annoyed me with its bugs and things,

    Fingers crossed

    im not nearly that bad at typing. and since i found out swype does directional buttons i wont be leaving that for a while. nice find though, i can definitely see the appeal, just not for me.

    Saw this earlier today and was impressed, I will definitely check it out once it is available. Speaking of which I wonder how long that will be.

    This looks like it operates just like TouchPal did on WinMo.

    This looks neat. One of the things I love about swype is that I can type with out looking at the screen. This will have that same value. I will definitely try it out.

    I'm pretty sure I saw a swype element in that video along with traditional typing. I could be wrong but when he got rid of the keyboard it appeared he was swyping at one point.

    It looks like that was on the IPAD. Some of those features may not be great for a smaller screen, but I'm totally on board. I think I have tried every single available keyboard. Currently using smart keyboard pro and swiftkey. I'm not a swyper.
