Optimus OLED Keyboard With Customizable Layout


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Peripherals


Optimus OLED Keyboard

I must get this keyboard, by any means necessary. Check it out - the keyboard uses OLED to display the keys, and thusly, they are all configurable. As you can see in the image, a few smart keys have been programmed to start specific applications. You can also change the layout display to match that of a first-person shooter for example. Just awesome. Check out more pictures of this marvel after the jump.

so its just a prototype. prototype shmototype. who’s starting the petition to have logitech begin mass production of these? i want one…make that five.

I’d give a kidney for that…that is by far the best thing i’ve seen in quite sometime.

^^^ Way to spoil our fun by making sense… :(

1. It is costly to make this keyboard. $500 minimum.
  Ok.
2. The keys are just to small to hold any useful information (imagine writing “Press me to fire, dude”).
  All you need written is fire, whic can definatly fit on    
  a key.
3. Where do you get power to drive all those screens?
  Battery, or plug it into the wall…....
4. The most important thing is support from all software vendors like Microsoft etc to provide one common way to draw images (tons of questions related to screen-on-key resolution)
  All you need to do is set up your drivers correctly.
  I can set up keys on my keyboard right now to do  
  whatever I want.
5. To get really cool keyboard with, for example, animated keys you’ve got to use fast interface (USB 2.0 or Ethernet)
    So? Go ahead and use USB 2.0.
6. PC software driver for this keyboard is not trivial at all.
    It’s not much more complicated then current
    keyboard software.  You just have to add
    something to control the images.

lol../.i head these can get expensive
