The Optimus keyboard will ship with Duke Nukem Forever

The Russian developers of the Optimus keyboard noted that the Art.Lebedev Studio will begin accepting pre-orders for the Optimus keyboard in December 2006 while the estimated ship date is sometime after next spring.  The keyboard’s designer, Artemy Lebedev, has continually delayed the keyboard for a number of different reasons since its official announcement last January.  The interesting looking keyboard immediately garnered attention from users because of the keyboard’s ability to allow users to customize every key for a number of different purposes.  

 

The Optimus keyboard and Optimus mini three are both innovative keyboard concepts that have faced long delays that have left possible consumers frustrated.  DailyTech posted an article in May that noted that there was no expected launch date for the full-size Optimus OLED keyboard – it looks like the outlook hasn’t gotten any better.  However, Lebedev has since dropped the OLED component from the keyboard, instead opting for backlit LCD keys.

 

While not being able to deliver with the Optimus keyboard, Artemy Lebedev has posted a blog about the Upravlator, the company’s “new keyboard.”  With the company’s track record with its previous products, we’re not holding our breath.

Why the Buzz?

Why does anyone give this company any buzz? I think they've proved themselves as a company that cannot deliver. It is a neat idea, but if they can't deliver, then it never becomes any more than just an idea.

They will deliver ...
Acording to the blog post http://community.livejournal.com/optimus_project/6... the production has already started.
The engenering of the thing was the problem, they knew they could do it, but they needed to make it barely afordable
