New 'Butterfly' Keyswitch: when is it coming to the wireless keyboard?

in Current Mac Hardware edited April 2015

All the attention has gone elsewhere:  USB 3.1, USB-C, the Watch, the Macbook, the new trackpad...but they redesigned the keyswitches to be smoother, more tactile, more accurate (IIRC).  As someone who generates a lot of text (A LOT OF TEXT) I can go thru a keyboard...and yes, it's time to replace this mushy thing I'm typing on.  If the new keytech turns out to be as described on stage, I hope Apple will license it broadly;  in the meantime, surely they are planning to roll the new hotness out to regular Apple BT keyboard buyers.


Any word from the usual suspects?  Any feedback on the new keys from Macbook-tryers?

    I hope to get a full size backlit Bluetooth keyboard out of Apple with a USB C port on it so that we can alternately charge Apple batteries or use it wirelessly.


    But that’s too useful and desirous for them to ever make.
