Optimus Maximus Keyboard

This keyboard is just like any other keyboard, except each key is its own OLED display. This means that the pictures on the keys are not set in stone, so different layouts or languages can be displayed. As well as different layouts and languages the keys can be set for shortcuts to programmes or different functions. Some examples are shown on the website http://www.artlebedev.com/everything/optimus/demo/ this site shows different language layouts, the dvorak layout, a Half-Life layout and a Photoshop layout. The demo gives a good idea of the possibilities that are opened by this keyboard.

width

537 mm

depth

173 mm

height

38 mm

key

20.2×20.2 mm

 

The rear of the keyboard houses 2 usb ports, an sd card slot (for keyboard layouts), a K-Lock slot, usb output and dc input.

The only problem is its approximate price, 1564.37$ (£763.112). £763 is far too much for a home user to pay for a keyboard, but there may be a space for this kind of product in industry, certainly in the future we should see cheaper products of this ilk, but not any time soon
