Ok, we lied. We're not bored of the Optimus Keyboard yet. Now Art Lebedev, the Russian equivalent of the Duke Nukem creators, have announced that the Optimus keyboard will have swappable keys. What does this mean to you?

It means you they're now free to release multiple versions of the keyboard. One with only the F-keys being displays, one with only the letter keys being displays, or one (like the original) with all keys being displays. This cuts down cost for people who don't need every single key to be changeable, and actually allows users to buy keys individually and upgrade to a full-blown Optimus keyboard over a period of time.


As long as this means we'll be able to get the Optimus keyboard within the year and for a decent price, we're sold.

Look, I'm a big fan of this keyboard. Have been waiting for it and gobbling up every piece of news regarding it for 3 years that I can recall.

But seriously, this man needs to make reality happen on some level. Only then, should he start doing things like making it modular.
