With a birthing time worthy of a miracle or two, the Grippity is finally out and you’ll be able to get your greedy back-typing hands on it.

You can preorder it on the Grippity site for $60, but you’ll only be getting it in February, but the gift-filled holidays should keep your gadget appetite in check until then.

The Grippity is not the first back-typing keyboard, but it’s the best looking and most solid one by a mile. It may take a while to get accustomed to typing ‘blind’, but once you do, you have four fingers for typing, plus the thumbs for the Grippity’s trackball and other assorted buttons.

And that’s the catch, with the added trackball, the Grippity now sees itself as the ‘ideal media center controller’.
