Optimus Popularis

Now available for pre-order, Art Lebedev’s Optimus Popularis is the result of many, many years of development of their ‘screen in every key’ keyboard idea, pleasantly emerging from rumours that again an Art Lebedev idea could turn into vaporware. With the ability to program each key for any purpose in any program, you can design an icon for each key or chose from a wide selection of presets, with popular programs already covered by software included in the box. Photoshop-aholics start drooling, multi-language households too, although the €747 price tag might prove too much of a snag. There’s a more cost-effective six-button model coming out too, though even that’s €258.
