Optimus-103 configurator spotted

Newlaunches.com has pictured the configurator for Art Lebedev's Optimus-103 keyboard. The Optimus is supposed to be a revolutionary keyboard, in that each key will have its own LCD, which will then be configurable through software. There will be endless possibilities, you will be able to fully customize the characters on the keyboard to the current software you are using.

The keyboard has been in development for quite a long time, and hopefully this is a sign that it will be available for purchase soon.

I'm not gonna lie.... that looks like a huge waste of money to me.... though i do like the idea that you can customize your keyboard a little more. Qwerty keyboards are actually designed to slow the typer down. If you do customize the letters on your keyboard though it will be harder for you to use regular keyboards.

I recall at one time that the customizable keys would only come in black and white. Did this change?
