Built with the same solid construction as the rest of their Tactile line with the added functionality of Bluetooth connectivity, the Matias Tactile One Keyboard seamlessly merges your mobile computing with your desktop system Read More

Build quality looks pretty awful for this price level, not to mention how ugly the (dated) design is.

so um what Bluetooth spec is this 3.0, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 this is a very important detail should not be overlooked.

As a Mac user in the mech community, I've gotten used to typing on keyboards designed for Windows to operate Mac OS. 95% of the functionality works right out of the box, and the rest can easily be configured with Karabiner. That said, it is nice to see a mechanical keyboard designed for Mac OS, and I'm sure I'd enjoy using it.
The #1 issue I see is that precious space on the keyboard is given up for placing a phone, but modern-day iPhones and Android phones probably wouldn't fit in the space provided. The photos show an iPhone 5c, which is a lot smaller than the 6s and 6s Plus on the market today. At least iPhone SE users would still be able to use this keyboard as designed.
The phone size issue is a deal breaker for me, but in general I still think this is a cool idea. I use the VB87M to type on my phone all the time.

How did this get to drop? It looks horrendous, no one I know who is somewhat mentally stable would want this, and the build quality is terrible. Pick up your game massdrop

For one, they left the space set aside for home/end/pg up-down empty under where your phone goes. It isn't a bespoke, purpose built thing, it has some half-baked functionality slapped onto an existing, somewhat badly-fit product. Look at the fit of the top/bottom panels, for instance. The whole thing looks very fisher-price.

I think you're being a bit harsh in regards to fisher-price here. The fisher-price level of design/finishing is much higher.

For all of the Mac people out there that actually want a quality mechanical keyboard but aren't interested in this one, I have to recommend putting in a request for the Matias Mini - https://www.massdrop.com/buy/matias-mini-tactile-keyboard
One of my favorite layouts and the USB hub is actually very useful if you've got an iMac or a Mac Pro. It's also dropped in the past, so we should be able to get it back again for everyone who missed out.

Matias are some of the nicest keyboards to type on. I would be in if I didn't have one already.

Not a fan of the case or the key legends, otherwise neat idea.
However on android I just use pushbullet - which syncs my phone notifications to a bar on my PC and I can answer texts on the PC through it easily.

I use MightyText; perhaps I should check out Pushbullet too.
edit: OK, I like the simplicity and interface of Pushbullet, but it doesn't seem capable of arbitrary texting from PC or tablet via phone, which is my primary use case for MightyText. It does however provide the ability to share things arbitrarily from Android and Firefox between devices, which MightyText does not (sharing from Android instead sends a text; neat for tablets), so they complement each other nicely. I'll use both. Thanks!

Some of these comments are Youtube-level stupidity. I have the Tactile Mini, and it's a great keyboard. I wouldn't mind having this for my PC, as PCs don't have the fancy handoff/continuity features of Yosemite, but I don't have the money at the moment.
