    Not really. 100 years != forever. One of those is a quantified estimate of time, the other is just rampant speculation.

    The keyboard has been around since the Civil War (1860s). It's been around for 150 years, and it is more popular than it has ever been. I don't lend much credibility to the notion that it will be dead in 10 years. Something that well established will stick around, slowly using popularity, or it will be killed instantly by something that is undeniably better. And the technology being showcased here isn't undeniably better. Something that might kill the keyboard would be thought-to-text. That's in the pipeline, and there have been some very promising trials, but it is IMO a lot more than 10 years away from being on every PC.

    Keyboards just feel nice, good resting places for your hands and the clacky noise of old keyboards still gets to me some days :)

    The simple answer still is: no.

    There isn't a viable replacement for the keyboard yet.
