To the ppl worried about never seeing the sun, living in darkness, etc... have u never used a solar-powered calculator either? Those things need very minimal light (any light) to operate. Same concept with this keyboard.
This keyboard is way cool. It's on my wishlist. I'm still holding out for a better deal since I already have a working keyboard. I'm confident that there will be a better deal for this since the AR price is alright.
EDIT: This keyboard is currently on sale at Staples[staples.com] for $59.99. Let's all ask Amazon to price match it and if they do it, than this'll be a slicker deal.

Concerning the environment, this thing still has a battery which is how it holds the charge. I guess a capacitor could be made to work but doubt they would bother using a quick discharge type part like that?
I do like the idea of solar panels however saying up front I have not heavily researched the lately I would like to point out that just because you're using energy from the sun does not mean your saving the environment/world/private ryan. You need to take into account the total waste and energy that goes into producing, maintaining, and disoposing of each product you compare which I very rarely ever see anyone do. That's also why I hate them stupid hybrids. If we made cars that got 60+ miles a gallon on a straight fossil fuel burning engine before why do we need to through in a battery type setup to achieve that again? Costs of producing those battery packs, replacing them, equipment to maintain them, dispose of them, etc add up. I do not know for sure what the overall best/worst setups are but then again neither does treehugging electro hybrid driving frappe sipping fad hoppers.
