Optimus Maximus Appears

The first functional example of Art Lebedev Studio's Optimus Maximus keyboard is now in use at the company's Moscow office, according to a brief entry in the company's photo blog. A still shot shows a staffer using the keyboard with his Mac, complete with lit keys. While it's unclear how much of the keyboard was truly active, the finished keyboard design should change the symbols on its OLED keys to reflect a given program, with the option of customizing the keys for new software.

The keyboard has been long in development and likely requires minor changes before it will reach mass production within the next few months. Art Lebedev's estimates currently have the first production models set to ship worldwide for Mac OS X and Windows PCs by December of this year for the equivalent of $1,564.

    Really?

    I'd expect to see some variation in colors. Looks like red, white, green, and blue LEDs on a keyboard to me...
