Optimus Tactus Keyboard

Optimus Tactus Keyboard

Art. Lebedev Studio, the team behind the Optimus Maximus OLED Keyboard, has come up with a very cool concept for yet another keyboard.

Optimus Tactus does not have physical keys, which means there are no restrictions on their shape and size. Any part of the keyboard surface can be programmed to perform any function or to display any images.

This is what the Optimus Tactus look like in video mode:

  1. Thanks a lot for the backlink mate. 🙂
    I want this keyboard too! 😛

  2. No problem pickupjojo. 🙂
    Mm, it sure is a cool looking keyboard.

  3. it would be extremely hard to touch type. And it would suck if the top got scratched

  4. thats looks like something out of star-trek
    Why do I have the feeling that we will be laughing at what our keyboards look like today in ten years like we laugh at 5 1/4″ floppy disks now.

  5. It does look nice, but Optimus now has a rep for two things:
    – Over promising while under delivering
    – vaporware

    Nice concept, they should patent it and hand the manufacturing off to a company that might actually deliver a keyboard that doesn’t cost a paycheck 🙂

  6. I (still) love Tatu!

  7. If the Optimus Max. is anything to go by the MSRP will be around $10,000 ;p.

  8. Nifty concept, but touch screens are overrated IMO. Enjoy your smudgy screen with keys you can’t feel.

  9. I imagine that:

    1) It will make your finger tips sore not having any cusioning on keystrokes.
    2) It will slow typing rate not having any key edges.
    3) It will be hard for those with long fingernails to type.
    4) It will be expensive.
    5) It will be too thick to be comfortable (to fit the screen).
    6) It will only find success for specialist products (kiosks, theme parks, &c.)
    7) It may never make production.

  10. I agree with you Bob, but it would sure look cool on the desk. 🙂

  11. Worst keyboard ever.

    I don’t want any touchy thingies on my gadgets at all if possible, but a keyboard is the last place you’d want them.

  12. It’s the flexibilty of the design that’s interesting and the way to go… set it for ego or classic or or or… the technology applications go far beyond a simple computer interface.

  13. That’s true Bj…and it looks cool too. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by!

  14. This is so interesting! I’m really impressed.

  15. Nice writing. You are on my RSS reader onw so I cna apprehend added frlm you down tue road.

  17. i wonder how it would hold up against spills?… i know i’m tired of sticky keys cuz of kids and open soda’s left on the desk :-/

  18. Wonderful!!!
