Optimus KeyboardI discovered the Optimus Keyboard from Slashdot and it’s worth re-posting here. The Optimus keyboard is made up of tiny LCDs built into the keytops that can change dynamically depending on the application. Imagine being able to switch between different keyboard languages on-the-fly! Click through to see the Photoshop and Quake Keyboard layouts too. According to Slashdot “They have included a FAQ at the middle-right of the page stating some of the questions that Slashdotters were wondering. A few interesting ones were ‘ It will be real’, ‘We hope it will be released in 2006′, ‘It will cost less than a good mobile phone’, ‘It will be OS-independent’, and finally ‘It will most likely use OLED technology (e-paper is sooo slow)’.”
