One thing I notice is that the Smart Fabric looks to be slower than FSR - they quote a latency "under 3ms" (so over 2ms) whereas the TrapKAT (which I can find the number for) quotes "about 1ms" (so well under 2ms).  Not particularly noticeable, admittedly.  Some of the KMI kit looks interesting (e.g. the new keyboard with position sensing on the keys, as well as press and release pressures).  Certainly looks like a technology to keep an eye on.
