I'd love to see someone with fast thumbs rip through at 60WPM on the Pyra. It's a rubber keymat, you'd have to get very framiliar with how far the press is for it to register. That's why it seems like I'm slamming on the keys, hence the slowdown. Also, the layout is a little unique, especially with alt/fn keys.Some people type insanely fast on on screen keyboards and might not be as fast on a small hardware keyboard.
However for things like typing code, where you need a lot of special characters, can benefit from keyboard shortcuts and can't rely as much on autocomplete, hardware keyboards are much better.
