Optimus Tactus: Touchscreen Keyboard
As you know, Art Lebedev finally started shipping the first Optimus keyboards a few weeks ago, but only to customers that ordered over a year ago. The original Optimus is in fact a bunch of mini OLED screens jammed into key sized boxes. Well, their newest concept, the Optimus Tactus, simply removes the keys and just goes all screen. In fact, one could argue that it’s a touch screen in a keyboard shape, right? Tactical feedback will be lost, but manufacturing should be more straight forward – not necessarily cheaper – than the original Optimus keyboard.

On a side note, I love the shoutout they give Engadget by placing their logo on the keyboard.
