    Re: Optimus as keyboard

    the thing is that the keyboard will work for any OS. They will be a special prog to set up the keyboard. The good is supposed to come out somewhere in 2006. no specific date. But be sure that I will have mine.....

    expect the price to not more that 150 $ usd. but We can be really sure. They will surelly sell some over Ebay. As artist, this is the better way to promote a periferic of this kind...

    damn $150 sorta seem pricey for a keyboard still, but then again it has lights under the buttons. hmm w/e we'll see how that goes when it releases i guess.

    $150? That's a fair price, to me. Wait, where can you buy one? Also how long is it. I'm assuming a normal keyboard with an extra 4 inches.

    The thing is... this is a prototype from a Russian startup company. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to come out... Plus there's the questions of warrenty, distribution, and support for new O.S. developments...

    even if this is a russian tech, the fact is that the idea is damm good and can revolutionate the little keyboard standard we have. also, having the power to customise it the way we want, is better that than getting a Z-board. and much least priced.

    Re: Optimus as keyboard

    That looks pretty cool, but when it comes down to it, I hardly every look at my keyboard. If those extra keys are outside of the standard issue, then I can see the (slight) advantages for gaming, but other than that, this product looks like it is designed more for bragging rights than functionality- in the same vein of case lighting.

    For now, if you need to rapid fire your apps on at a faster-than-mouse rate, you can always use the old school method of "shorcut keys" under the apps' properties menu. And if you are brave, you could always remap your entire keyboard out of the qwerty setup.
