Looks awesome, but I have my doubts about functionality. For one, the numeric line is shifted a full key to the right which will mess with muscle memory pretty badly. The 'W' key is normally sitting halfway and below the '2' and '3' keys whereas here the '1' key is almost directly above W. This means you just lost ring finger usage on the left hand for tapping those.
Also, the left shift is a full key position to the left of normal because they had to stuff the backslash key somewhere after giving the right side of the keyboard a 'cool angular look.' They chose to put it between the left shift and Z keys. This means your pinky finger will be stretched twice the distance to tap that for running or whatever. People may still love it and simply adjust, but I wouldn't buy this for looks or features without accepting that your normal playstyle will need some time to adapt.
