'Optimus Maximus' maker is at it again

The "Optimus Popularis" is a work in progress.

Art Lebedev

The adventures of Art Lebedev's keyboards continue. We thought there might be a lull in news from the Russian design firm now that it has gone to market with its "Optimus Maximus," the most-hyped keyboard of all time. Silly us. Now the company is already onto its Next Big Thing, the "Optimus Popularis."

Although it's still very much a work in progress, Electronista says it differs from the Maximus by not using OLED displays, though some keys will have symbols that change with different software. The Popularis is also smaller, though don't expect the price to be tiny. All that's been said is that it will be under $1,000. Such a bargain.
