Optimus Maximus

After releasing the concept, we initially were developing a keyboard with 103 black-and-white FSTN keys for 1,200 US$. Time has passed.

Here's what we will release in late November/early December 2007. Since we don't have any PR dept, there's no word 'revolutionary' in description.



It's a 114-key keyboard.

It has 10 extra keys on the left for all the controlling/monitoring functions.



Every key, including the space bar, has a display.

Each display is 32x32 pixels full-color OLED.



Each key is user-replaceable.

It's a mass-storage device, so you can edit and upload layouts into it.



It's intended for a wide range of professionals - from linguists to video editors.

It's called Optimus Maximus.



We'll start taking pre-orders later this month for a 1,490 US$.



I would like to thank everyone for the continuing support and belief in the project as well as for non-stop critique and scepticism.

Come and talk to us at CeBIT in Hannover (hall 19, stand E22).
