    Cool Keyboard with stand-alone display on each key

    You should check this: Optimus Keyboard

    Every key of the Optimus keyboard is a stand-alone display showing exactly what it is controlling at this very moment.

    Some answers:
    • It’s in the initial stage of production.
    • We hope it will be released in 2006.
    • It will cost less than a good mobile phone.
    • It will be real.
    • It will be OS-independent (at least it’s going to be able to work in some default state with any OS).
    • It will support any language or layout.
    • Moscow is the capital of Russia.
    • Each key could be programmed to produce any sequence.
    • It will be an open-source keyboard, SDK will be available.
    • Some day it will be split (and made “ergonomic”).
    • It will most likely use the OLED technology (e-paper is sooo slow).
    • Our studio is located two blocks from the Kremlin.
    • It will feature a key-saver.
    • Keys could be animated when needed.
    • It has a numeric keypad because we love it.
    • There’s no snow in Moscow in summer.
    • It will be available worldwide (why not?)
    • OEM is possible (why not?)

    The concept is amazing. I'm wondering if this kind of keyboard won't be the next "standard" !
