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.

wasn't this a hoax?
...There is a very large flock of small birds in my backyard right now. I just thought you should know that.

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.
