The Optimus keyboard might hit the market

I guess you remember about the Optimus keyboard, right? Each key is a screen, thus allowing to change the keys according to the application you use. Well, the people behind it were at CES 2013.

And what is the announcement, then? That they succeeded in making it cheaper, with the Optimus Popularis. The solution? Instead of making each key a screen, make each key transparent, and put a unique screen under the whole keyboard.

Now, how much cheaper does that make it? The announced price tag would be $700… It might hit the market this summer, we’ll see then if the success is here

For full advice, see news on the net. They are quite numerous about CES, and you might find some from people who actually tried the keyboard…
