    Each key is an OLED display that can change what it's displaying for whatever program/language/game you are using.

    Anyway, the possibilities for this thing are endless... the modders can have their Klingon, Romulan, Predator, whatever keyboards... and you know it won't be but a day after it's released that someone writes a full on display driver for the thing. Having your keyboard turn into a spectrum analyzer for Winamp/XMMS or have it create a ripple effect like water when you press a key.

    Badass lil toy.

    The pictures are concept renderings, meaning the keyboard hasn't even been engineered yet, and unless someone want's to buy a $400 keyboard, I doubt it will go into production by anyone, at least not until OLED's get marginally cheaper. Right now, it would technically be far more feasable to make a touch-screen keyboard. Meaning there would be no physical keys to press. Typing would be a bit ridiculous, but someone could make it work.

    I'd pay 400 bucks for that. It's cool enough.

    Well the OLED idea is now in a lot of people's minds so you'll see one soon enough.

    OLED will be unbelievably cheap when it hits the market en masse, considerably cheaper than LCD. The only problem with OLED was keeping the green alive for anything longer than a few minutes. With the release of new digital cameras that use OLED for their displays, they've figured it out.

    Either way, this is a good look at the future of the keyboard.

    I saw this on engadget, looks pimp as hell. I'll probably pick one up a a few years when they hit the market :)
