Optimus Maximus - Here's what a $1,490 keyboard looks like (ZDNET)

ZDNET reports on the final version of the Optimus Keyboard, due Dec 2007 and selling at $1,490 on pre-order

I can't tell if I'm excited or not.

I've been following the developtment of this keyboard for a long time now.

I really wanted it once, but:
too expensive
too unreliable
too short life expectancy.

I'll stick to the wireless apple keyboard.

It will be for the people who buy them. But, no, the keyboard is apparently real.

$1500!!! What is this guy thinking!? The last time I checked, it was only going to be $100. Still a lot for a keyboard, but not as much as the car I'm driving. I think I'd be better off trying to make my own version.

Almost wonder if the guy has even thought of pricing it mass market. Seems to be priced as a specialty niche product and probably won't sell nearly as well now. I do have a big interest in this keyboard due to asthetics, and the idea that I can just change the look of the buttons to my applications. That would certainly be very handy to me.

$100? You can't even get Logitech DiNovo's for that price since those are easily over $200. It's too bad the OM keyboards don't have the same kind of low profile "laptop" keys as the DiNovo's have, otherwise I'd definitely buy one.
