It would be almost identical to the membrane switches that are on there, but
made out of real Mylar, instead of the stuff Fender of Japan used that
deteriorates after a few years.
Can't say for certain when they'll be ready, but maybe January. I've got
finished artwork for all the layers, I've got someone to handle the
distribution (i.e., sales tax collection in Massachusetts), so now I have to
pick a vendor. I'll also have to make sure they work on a friend's Polaris
(since mine is an old prototype). Don't have a price yet.
