Optimus Pultius turns Aux
Art Lebedev, of Art Lebedev Studio fame, has updated his blog on Friday, announcing the previously reported Optimus Pultius customizable keypad will be called the Optimus Aux when it is released. The device is still under development, though it is a working prototype.
The new device will be tailored for users who do not want or need the company's full-size Optimus Maximus keyboard, but offers a similar range of 15 user-programmable OLED keys and a pass-through USB port. The customizable keys will let users custom-tailor the keypad to bring up their most often used programs quickly, and the device is especially useful for Final Cut Studio users or gamers.
