Looks like they finally hit the end-point in functional design. At least until there are brain implants.

Are you questioning the proven procrastination abilities of Apple's design division?!
We need it; we just don't KNOW we need it!

Same reason there's a GPS and a gyroscope.
I like the idea, and the way it just kind of floats there is awesome. However, I tried the Smart Keyboard and it was just too small for full-speed typing for me. I'd have to have a 12" iPad Pro, which I also considered but really wouldn't suit my needs well.

I'd love the 12.9" model for reading music, but that seems like a lot of money when I can just, you know, use paper.
