This is a great concept that never got into production; would be fun to try and build one.

Now those I like, particularly the physical and very tactile up/down action that polarises everything 8-)

The masterstroke is when around 2:00 that you realise those up/down controls are also rotary knobs :clap: :thumbup:

Then the multi-touch chord shapes come in...

Yep, these are GREAT

What a shame they didn't go into production - what happened?

It's not very clear; it seems to have been a research project by this lot. They did a bit of collab with Little Boots back in 2013, then it all went quiet.

Shame - the only other video I've been able to find is this one:

...although engadget did give the project some coverage way back in 2011:
