    Link: Optimus Maximus Keyboard Is Here - This keyboard knocks the socks off those lame keyboard pants. Each key has a programmable OLED screen. So sweet!

    Yes but in Beast Wars (About`99) he was the Autobots became Maximals. I figured Maximus was just misinformed. Jumped to conclusions seeing Optimus.

    "Optimus Maximus is a misleading name...

    Yes, the Optimus Maximus confused me at first. I was watching it and thinking what does this have to do with Optimus Prime and then it hit me. It was the wrong word. Very confusing.

    Neat keyboard though.

    I need/want one of these about as much as I`d like an Ipod or an Iphone. The novelty would wear off pretty quickly, though I wouldn`t mind fooling around with a floor model for five or ten minutes.

    Hopefully these will sell well enough to encourage other manufacturers to begin making something similar. That`ll help drive the price down to a more affordable range.

    Ok. I know it`s insanely expensive... But dear lord. That`s one of the coolest accessories for a computer I have ever seen. No, I wouldn`t pay 1600 for a keyboard... but still... if they knock it down to a few hundred... I`d probably make something happen there.

    ERGh 1,589 is ridiculous!

    Who seriously looks down at their keyboard anyway.
    DO WANT this, but DO NOT WANT kayboard over $100.

    Kinda useless with a mac tho, the keyboard is more usefull than that crashtastic/80`s laggwagon their using it on.

    saw this the other day.
    kind of a cool idea.
    but what`s with the mid-90`s ugly black casing?
    and that nauseating textured plastic that traps dirt?
    for the price, it looks freakin clunky.
    there was definitely no industrial designer on that team.

    To bad if you read any reviews fr the keyboard, it`s a really bad typing experiance. Yes, every key on the thing is fully customizable, but with that price tag it should be responsive and ot take alot of pressure to push the buttons.

    It`s just a keyboard? What`s the point of it? It`s not like you`d want to rearrange the keys or something. Do you even LOOK at your keyboard? I know I don`t, I forgot what color it was. Of course, this keyboard would make you want to look at the keys. It`s not that awesome, maybe if it could do the typing for you.

    Sure, this keyboard is cool but way to expensive (and they don`t ship outside the US anyway).

    in fact sod that, i can`t wait till it`s on the sales in the uk in 15 years!

    but seriously, $1,589 is a bit pricy. probably really worth it though...
