Optimus Upravlator

Although its initial keyboard concept is only now reaching users in the form of the Mini-Three assistant, Art Lebedev Studio says it's developing a new device that would be a useful companion device to creative workers and gamers. Currently existing only in prototype form, the Optimus Upravlator will expand the company's existing computer controls to a full twelve buttons in a shape reminiscent of a computer screen. As with the Mini-Three, each button will incorporate its own display that can animate or change depending on the program and its immediate context. The studio suggests roles such as a palette tool for artists, a properties editor for 3D modeling software, or a cockpit instrument cluster for a flight simulator. No definite information about the device's eventual release has been given. A gallery is available after the jump.
