Customizable OLED keys are the highlight of this new Russian keyboard.

There Art Lebedev Studio website has been updated with additional information on the Optimus OLED keyboard. Each key is customizeable meaning you can use one keyboard for multiple languages and even tailor the layout to specific applications or games if you are so inclined. According to the website, the keyboard is due to go on sale February 1st. Considering that each key has its own OLED display, I don't even want to know how much this keyboard will cost.

While this is pretty cool, I'd much rather a completely customizable keyboard built onto one large, continuous touch-screen panel. Imagine if you could just put your hand on a scanner to create a handprint profile, then generate a custom-sized layout for typing or gaming or whatever.

A while back it was rumored to cost around $200-220. But OLED is a whole lot cheaper to produce compaired to LCD; So I am glad it is OLED.

Star Trek flat-touch displays

Yeah like in Star Trek Next Generation. All displays you touch are flat. I actually had a Microwave in the 80's that had a hard surface touch screen. It would only work if you touched it with your fingers. If you held something in your hand, like a pencil, and touch the buttons, it wouldn't work.

Flat panels would suck to type on, no tactile feedback.

That's what I thought, until I got my Touchstream keyboard/mouse. It took a month to get used to not having any tactile feedback, but it's been smooth sailing ever since.
