Russian studio behind Optimus OLED keyboard unveils name, photos of much delayed keyboard
The Art.Lebedev Studio, the company responsible for the vaporous Optimus keyboard,
unveiled press shots
of the Optimus Maximus, the newly re-named $1,490 keyboard featuring OLED keys.
The Maximus will have 114 keys, some of them featuring 32x32 pixel full-color OLED displays that are replaceable and customizable by users. Production of the keyboards began on February 7, 2007, the company announced.
The company is not showing the keyboard during CeBIT in Germany, even though it appeared that a working unit would be presented during the event. Furthermore, the release date of the pricey keyboard will be pushed back until this December. Interested customers were able to start
placing pre-orders for the keyboard
last December, with an
expected launch date sometime spring 2007
Artemy Lebedev, the lead designer of the Maximus, first announced the keyboard in January of 2006, receiving large amounts of press coverage due to the concepts behind the keyboard.

I would only buy this keyboard with that amount of money if it lasted for longer then say... Oh... 10 years. I would also it buy it if was under a decent warranty. $1.4k for a keyboard is a lot, so it better last a long time.

Don't spill juice over your $1.4k keyboard.
Who would have ever thought that your keyboard can be more expensive than your highend PC?

A "high end" will usualy run you more than $1,400.
