Got it in the UK from http://www.afterhours.co.uk/Shop/airkey.htm - you
have to love the price if you're comparing it with the logitech RF ones
and it looks far better in the living room.
The IR receiver comes with quite long wires which terminate in two PS/2
plugs. You have to position it quite carefully (ie high) so that you can
type whilst resting the keyboard on your lap. It seems to send key
up/down events so you can get weird autorepeating if someone walks
between at the wrong time.
The arrow keys are really small and probably will be the first things to
go since they are so heavily used with myth.
