Two new CW products from Europe

Here are two new CW products from Europe that Ive come across in the past
couple of days. It kind of amazes me that folks continue to produce CW
products. If you go by the level of activity on the CW bands, youd think
that no one would be buying these things.
TKEY-0 Mini Touch straight Key. I think this is great idea, and Im
surprised that no one else has thought of this before. At €14 (+€7
shipping!), its kind of expensive, but it should be buildable for a
fraction of that cost. I may just have to build my own. A touch key like
this should be a lot easier on the wrist than a standard straight key.
Morserino-32 is a multifunctional device for learning Morse code or
improving Morse code skills. It has the following functionality:

CW Keyer
Code Generator
Echo Trainer (repeat what you hear)
CW Decoder (from a straight key or from audio input)
CW Transceiver, using LoRa in the 70cm band


It has built-in capacitive touch paddles, but you can also connect external
paddles.

One unique feature is the LoRa transceiver. This allows two or more
Morserinos to communicate with one another on the 70 cm band at distances
up to several hundred meters.

A complete kit costs €80, which seems a little on the steep side, but the
software is open source, so you could theoretically cobble together your
own hardware and just adapt the software. The Kickstarter page doesnt say
if the hardware is going to be open source, so you can probably assume it
wont be. Because its a Kickstarter project, it is presumably still under
development, and none of the documentation is available yet.
