Looks like a normal keyboard doesn’t it? Well, this keyboard is anything but ordinary. In saying that, for a price tag of approximately $1862US then you should get something a little bit special. So, for the gamers (and typists) amongst you, this could be the next big thing. But why, I hear you ask, given that it looks just a bit like a normal Apple keyboard?
Well, the Optimus Maximus keyboard is a revolution. Each key is actually a small OLED screen, designed to be changed on the fly. So, do you program? Type in a language beyond standard english? Want you ‘leet speak’ to go on there? All this and much more is possible. Hell, if you’re clever enough you could probably make it display a picture – though that would render it a little useless.
In terms of connectivity, you’ve got 2 USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot (for storing your settings and data), a K-lock, standard USB support and a DC input. The software is fully customisable and the service life of the keys should be pretty good as you only press the plastic cover of the keys. Software support is for Windows XP and MAC OS X.
