Optimus keyboards approach vaporware status
Although the Optimus OLED keyboard and Optimus mini three are interesting keyboard concepts, both products keep getting delayed. The Optimus keyboard has a "Don't expect until late 2006" status on the
Art Lebedev Studio web site
mini three keyboard
that was supposed to be released on May 15
will not be shipped
until at least August 15, 2006. The mini three costs $121 and will feature a 6-bit, 96x96 pixel OLED display on each key, which is capable of displaying 5 frames per second.
The price and ship date of the full-size Optimus OLED keyboard is unknown. The studio had previously announced a full 104 key OLED keyboard
back in January
, but has since made several promises and defaulted on the actual ship date. The studio later announced that a keyboard would be available in Feburary 1st, 2006, but when February 1st finally rolled around, the studio instead announced the three-key mini-keyboard that was once again delayed today.

On their website it says "It will cost less than a good mobile phone." To me, that means roughly $300 or so. And yes, I do believe it's worth it. As a gamer, imagine not having to look at a help screen to figure out where the jump button is... just look at the keyboard and see the key that says "Jump". Or, as a programmer, imagine adding some macros for some bit of code that you have to add a lot... program the keyboard so it changes the key labels when the Ctrl key is pressed, and you'll never forget which keys do what. I can see all kinds of uses for this, and I can't wait to get one.
