The idea is great but I'd rather have a regular cromatic keyboard (even with small keys and with the octaves on top of each other).

Really cool.

Pricey, though.

Just don't hold your breath on this.
It will take time (if it ever will be released as a commercial product).

this was discussed at length (ad nauseam) in the electronic forum.

if you read his website you'll see he says that it's just a research project because the company that made the touch surface for it was bought by amazon to make the kindle and then shut down for anything but kindles.. so the technology is no longer available. he goes into detail on his site..

so, don't expect to ever see this as a commercial project.

edit:

here's the existing thread

Then find another company. That kind of touchscreen technology isn't difficult or proprietary. I've seen it implemented in many different products. I even know people making things very similar from scratch in their basements.

I can't imagine an inventor like Roger Linn would let that kind of hurdle prevent that product from hitting the market if there's enough demand for it.

here.. read for yourself - but i'll highlight a key part

"A key expense is in developing a multi-touch, pressure-sensitive, high-resolution, fast-response, low cost touch surface technology."

http://www.rogerlinndesign.com/products/linnstrument/index.html

"Alas, until someone else comes up with a similar touch technology or Amazon decides to make the TouchCo technology available, development of our product will be limited to refining our Max/MSP patch. One promising new technology we've evaluated is a touchscreen from Stantum (same company as JazzMutant, makers of the Lemur) that senses surface area of your fingers, which is not a bad alternative to sensing pressure because your finger surface area increases as you increase pressure. However, I found that their current resolution wasn't high enough for what I'm trying to do, plus true pressure sensing is better for musical control."
