Default Most amazing keyboard ever! - Old But Found Updates!

http://www.artlebedev.com/portfolio/optimus/



English Lower Case

Photoshop

Gaming/Quake


**UPDATES 03-04-2007**
Decided to do a little research on this keyboard again since I haven't heard anything in awhile and here is the good and bad news I have found...

THE GOOD: It switches back to color!
http://www.engadget.com/2006/12/08/o...back-to-color/

Optimus-103 Configurator
http://www.engadget.com/2007/03/02/o...t-its-hardwar/


THE BAD: Comes with current $1200 price tag but should drop below $1000 by Sept. '07
http://www.engadget.com/2006/11/29/o...s-you-read-th/

There was also an article saying that you could preorder since Dec 12, but I haven't found anything on the site as of yet.

Optimus Keyboard Takes Another Hit, Only Available in B&W

It seems everyone's favorite new age Russian keyboard is getting crappier and crappier everyday. The Optimus keyboard that we have been talking about for months now is only going to be available in black and white at first with color possibly coming in the future for a shitload more money.
So yeah that sucks.

It should never be cheaper to smash in your monitor than to smash your keyboard when you get pissed at the computer. I wouldn't buy one.
