With the exception of the iPhone, is the Optimus Keyboard the most hyped piece of technology ever? We have been talking about it for the best part of two years – and still we wait. Well, we’re one step nearer ownership this weekend – if you have the cash to spare.
Yes, pre-ordering opens for the Optimus keyboard at the Art. Lebedev Studio website from 20th May at 3pm Moscow time. If you want one, it sells for $1,564 – around £800 to you and me. And then there’s a wait, with the initial 200 set for November delivery, followed by 200 in December and 400 in January.
For your money (which is around the cost of a decent desktop PC), you get one of the most exclusive keyboards in the world, with all 114 keys featuring a customisable OLED screen. And of course, lots of bragging rights.
