    Looks like the Optimus Keyboard is finally becoming a reality.

    You can preorder, as well as view a trivial interactive flash demo. Price is just a touch high for me though. :dead:

    No. But if it gets enough attention I think the price might start falling pretty quickly.

    unlikely. Last I looked they were only making 200 in the first run. That will keep prices high as demand far outstrips supply.

    Perhaps, but they are not stupid. They know they can sell a hell of a lot more of them at say 300$ a pop then at 1,500. And once they stage production up and getting the production pipeline down they will be cheaper to produce as well.

    I'm going to buy 2 of these :D

    One for home and one for work.

    And maybe one more for my stand-up comedy show :smoker:
