Will the drivers be open source? Linux support?

Will images, mappings, etc be stored on an internal flash chip, or per-computer?

Will the keyboard ‘light up’? Will there be a (hardware or software) based option to turn this off?

Are you considering making a compact model? (Without hotkeys and keypad)

Will the final model have a standard return key, or the large one shown in press images?

Will there be pre built in themes for popular games like HL2 or CS?

Will there be a place for people to make themes and upload them so other people can use them?

OLED has been documented as actually rotting over time, due to its organic component. How is that prevented on this keyboard? If it isn’t, what’s the estimated lifespan of the keycap screens?

Mac support?
Why the Optimus Mini Three?
Since it probably will be USB connected, will it be implemented with a USB hub?
How far has the developement come?
Since his company is based in Russia, any ideas how it will be distributed to the rest of the world?
How will he overcome the patents, since someone filed the idea before him?
Are images on the individual OLEDs saved within the keyboard or on the computer? would be a pain in the ass to boot up with an unlabeled keyboard
