$1000 Keyboard

Tired of regular old keyboards? Well look no further than this $1000 piece of equipment for your computer. Its a keyboard, but..... it has little screens for each key. That's right, every key in this keyboard is a miniature OLED screen, so long to the old physical keys. Called the "Art Lebedev Optimus Popularis", this thing right here is awesome. Well the pricing is rumored to be around $1000 and under but who knows, if I had money to blow I would get this in an instant. Oh yea it seems its is delayed for some reason but it will make a debut later this year.

                                    I want this beautiful piece of technology.

who in their right minds would even consider paying 1000$ for a keyboard??

Old Liam said...

If I had the money, I'd buy it as well. It just looks like a lot of fun. Looking down at my keyboard tray would once again become a joy. My old G15 is starting to look a bit rough.

Master Maniacal said...

If I drop a grand on a keyboard it had better come with a number pad. Right now my G510 from logitech does all of this. Still this looks good though for rich people.

I wouldn't bother with a keyboard like that. I want to buy the one from think geek that lights up a key board from a little tube and reads where you are typing.

IanFromLastNight said...

It looks cool, but I don't think I could type well without the physical keys. Seems like it would be like the iPad keypad.

mrbabylon said...

$1000, wow that is insane

Rabidmoose said...

That's pretty awesome but 1,000 bucks? That's a lot for a keyboard.

Neuro said...

Maybe if i win lotto :)

James said...

If I had the money, I would.

Tom Gunner said...

I could be pretty awesome but I don't know how useful it would be as a gaming keyboard, which is the primary use of my keyboard.

Cpt Trips said...

If I had the money I'd buy some food.

PMG ChecK said...

hmm Seems like a standalone keyboard of the Razer Switchblade, except the Razer thing is purely gaming, while this seems to be multipurpose.
Keep up with the cool new tech!

xazbaschboss said...

That sounds so awesome. Wish I had a grand to blow on it.

thatredmage said...

f0rwhatitsworth said...

Unholy Prophet said...

AugustineOfRhino said...

A thousand bucks? For that it had better fix me a martini and give me a handjob at the press of a button!

Hey, nice post, looking forward to the next ones. :)

my day in a sentence said...

Does it sing? Does it dance? No?
Then it's overpriced for around 980 bucks.

rego87 said...

When I'm playing CS:S I mash keyboards like hell so having a $1000 keyboard would be a bad move for me.

Bassislv said...

wow, just wow! really wish i could have the money for one

Adolph Gingerhorn said...

rickysha said...

If only I was rich. Although I'm sure most people will be using this technology in the future.

Gamerman's Gaming Blog said...

Hahaha, if I had a million dollars yeah but I sure as hell won't use any of my hard-earned money on that!

Ian Begley said...

I'd probably spill coffee on it.

Joe said...

PeP said...

Wolfgang Fegelein said...

$1000 for a keyboard? As cool as it is, I'll pass.

Robert Fünf said...

Jeez! Not for a grand.

SpaceCadet said...

i still have my keyboard from my 386, and i would gladly still use it if i could find an adapter lol.

Zennith said...

Luxury keyboards. Wow, technology is certainly advancing at a very fast pace!

Romeo Tango said...

Wasn't this thing supposed to come out a few years back? Huh.

Bob said...

I'm ready for keyboards to be thin enough to roll up and put in a backpack or something. Or some kind of holographic projector. But that's a little to futuristic for out time i'm afraid.

Dilgaf said...

my friend told me about this awhile ago, i never looked it up and i totally forgot about it. thanks for the post

Tasos said...

sometimes they make these kind of rediculus stuff. like that water that costs $50 per bottle

Plansetas said...

looks like a waste of money to me. i just don't understand buing thing like keybord with with screens instead of buttons more or close to the price of the pc you bought.

Rose said...

Fascist for Fashion said...

Good lord this is badass

Ni shi mao said...

Hurley said...

Such a complex piece of work, INSTEAD OF PLASTIC, IT USES SCREENS.

Joe said...

Kitari said...

It's times like these I wish I was one of those people who made enough money that they could blow it on whatever.

Adamski said...

Kaluxos said...

Looks frigging great!! though $1000 seems a bit pricey but if you can buy that then I doubt that money is the worst of your problems

Esteam said...

That's pretty crazy! Too expensive though!

Cowbellrocker said...

Eh, if I had the money to blow, I'd get it.

Daniel Healy said...

wow that is abit expensive for the avergae user if you ask me

Okko said...

if it changes the letters according to your used font....THAT would be awesome ...but way to expensive

yossarian said...

hmmm im not sure i really see the point.. my keyboard works fine without individual screens

Stan said...

I DEFINITELY want

Rick said...

with 1000 dollars i can build a pc to play crysis on, and have enough left to buy some lunch.

keyboard is cool though haha

Zack said...

Yeah i'd buy it if it was alot cheaper :)

BaumWurst said...

So it's like an iPad? :P the things they come up with these days :)

Admin said...

Why the hell does it cost so much?^^

Jorge said...

As sexy as that is, I wouldn't spend that much on it.

Johnny Drama said...

Damn, if I had the money, I'd probably buy that too haha.

8bitAcidTrip said...

To bad it doesn't print money

Sam said...

Wow, personally i'd never pay out more than $100 dollars for a keyboard

Sixx said...

I cant imagine spending 1K on anything, let alone a keyboard!!
Would NOT want to have your coffee near that ;)

Xionitsu said...

I want one! but..Alas too much coinage. Lol

Troy said...

much as i'd love to join in with everyone and say there's no practical use for a keyboard like this, i've always wanted to feel like i'm on the fucking Enterprise.

The_illustrative_Mind said...

I know some day, I'll end up buying a keyboard like this. Had to choose the path of Programming..

kal said...

I'd rather buy food,

Frosty said...

But think of all the awesome stuff you can put on your keyboard!

Michael J said...

Pretty damn cool but i could never bring myself to spend this much on a keyboard, even if i had the cash, lol

Jadedinutah said...

Do. Want!

The Spotlight said...

Anyone care to get me this for my bday? =)

Ion762 said...

I think there are probably better things to spend 1000 dollars on....like 10 100 dollar keyboards!

What a wonderful world said...

If only I had the money ...

... I wouldn't buy it. :D

Chris Maley said...

I've heard its ok but the keys since they are mini screens are bitch to push down so they register a hit.. i could be wrong tho every hand is different i could have no trouble with it :p

NGC773 said...

For $1000 that keyboard looks like it isnt worth it! My G15 is all i need!

Wolfe said...

Nice bit of kit.. but $1000? I'd rather get a new laptop

D said...

I beta'd one of these. This very model (about 7 months ago...) and "lost it".

shame, because it's sssssssuuuuupppppeeerrrr nice.

swagdigital said...

OMG! I really want this now. Someone should buy me one...asap!

MunAlderson said...

so unnecessary, but I want it so much, lol

scaggz said...

if only i was $1000 richer...in due time

TheMostRegal said...

Speaking of cool tech I want a Motorola Atrix 4G.

YetAnotherUnreadBlogger said...

Is there really any justification behind paying $1000? What's so great about each key being a separate screen?

Tah_Lehy said...

Woah, too sharp, too sharp.

UFOS ARE REAL said...
