Not surprising, Windows software first, but they say they'll be doing OS X and Linux as well. Also mention of open source and SDK for it.

I can think of a LOT of fun things to do with one :-)


there was this article in The Register <http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2006/02/02/lebedev_oled_keypad/> today about that ... It seems really cool.


I know it adds very little, but I believe it also appeared on slashdot over a month ago. These keyboards make you think twice before sipping cof- fee over the table or even venting your anger at them.

It  is one of many attempts to re-invent the keyboard, thereby making peo-
ple  buy  clumsy flashy gadgets. They use similar strategies to drive  the
cellphone and fashion industries.

Keyboard  accelerators are already very powerful on GNOME, KDE or  X-level
(xbindkeys).  Having said that, some might fancy the idea of never  having
to  look up key bindings. They are visible atop the keyboard itself. Need-
less  to mention, few people look at the keyboard when typing and particu-
larly when playing shoot-em-up games.
