    LCD Keyboards are nearly here :)

    It might not be as nice and sleek as the virtual concept keyboard we all drooled about a few months back, but this one is set to appear sometime in Jan 2006

    Yes granted its not as sexy as this one here - http://www.artlebedev.com/portfolio/optimus/

    but at least the technology is starting to roll out onto the market (be it slowly)

    Aye, and that keyboard only seems to have LCD buttons at the top of the keyboard, the majority of the keys are normal. The whole 'Quake' keyboard config shown in the concept pictures is going to make me wait
    New Sig on the Way...

    Very fugly. The optimus however is awsome. I wouldn't mind paying £200 for one. There would be hell to pay if anyone spilt coke on it.

    It does look quite interesting, I have to agree with "csi_grissom" as well, the Saitek's do look sweet.

    The Optimus does look amazing as well, might be out of my price range though.

    i just love the idea that there only needs to be one symbol on each key until you press, Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Alt Gr, etc. with the Optimus concept.

    Would apps need to be written for it, or would a system level driver take care of detecting apps? (retorical)

    I guess it's likely that an app taking care of that, rather than drivers. And those guy at United should fire the designer, it's plain ugly.
    Primary kit:
    Fuji S5 Pro - Nikkor AF 50/1.8 - Nikkor AF 85/1.8
    Epson RD-1

    Film Kit:
    Leica M3 - Summicron 50/2 DR - Zeiss ZM 25/2.8 - M-Rokkor 40/2

    Olympus OM2n - Zuiko 50/2 Macro - Zuiko 50/1.4 - Zuiko 35/2.8

    i can't wait for that Optimus keyboard. good to see lots of companies working on the technology though, should push each other to release it all sooner rather than later
