Every key of the Optimus keyboard is a stand-alone display showing exactly what it is controlling at this very moment.

Optimus is good for any layouts—Cyrillic, Ancient Greek, Georgian, Arabic—and so on to infinity: notes, numerals, special symbols, HTML codes, mathematical functions.

It really is amazing stuff...
When using Battefield, Adobe Photoshop, or anything else... we have the customised keys.

Additional block of keys on the left is meant for switching between programs or modes....



Gaming ....

Well if it works... unlike the oled mini.. which has enough flaws to make you want to hurl the thing out the window... the software crashes random and too much..

Ahh, I haven't had experience of it, I really do hope this optimus keyboard works better! Maybe OLED software will be more refined, but I haven't heard much about OLED with vista, and proper support for it. I am guessing the software will also use alot of CPU and be quite annoying in the sys tray lol!

The creators of the optimus maximus keyboard have come out with an even better design. The whole keyboard is a touch screen, and has its own video player. its awesome, but its only a concept:
