since june 07













''It's not often a new keyboard attracts widespread attention - then again, it's not often a new keyboard costs $1,500.

However, the Russian company behind the much-hyped and long-awaited Optimus Maximus keyboard is about to start taking pre-orders from computer owners with more money than sense.

The Art Lebeved keyboard justifies its extravagant price tag by placing a small OLED display behind each of the 113 keys. Specially programmed software will be able to change the picture on each of the 48 x 48 pixel displays - allowing games to display customised shortcut layouts, for example.

The first batch of 200 keyboards will start to ship at the end of November, but wealthy typists who are keen to get their hands on the device can place pre-orders from May 20.''

That keyboard will go well with my mouse that i stole from school (as I couldn't afford a new one), my massive CRT monitor, and my computer that makes so much noise, you have to wear ear muffs when in the same room. Yep, I think I'
ll order one of them tomorrow Smiley

Pfft.. what a waste of money!!
- and the wosrt thing about it, is that it has a Windows Key on it.. so it is clearly designed to work with Windows. Why would you spend that much money to use a Microsoft product?

Jam- Each of the keys is actually a screen, thus you are able to change the image or symbol on each key via a program running on your computer.
