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.

5 years normal use, 3 years around the clock 24/7, and like many keyboards of its kind (the G15) it probably turns off after not being used, and as soon as you touch a button it wakes up, much like a screen saver, making it outlast the tackle feedback of the keys (10 years)
Besides, by the time this thing 'wears out' there will be something way newer and cooler. 3-5 years is a long time in IT.
I like it, and will be buying one for $1400 when available.
