Id LOVE to have that keyboard, but...1500? No thankyou.

Here's a little update:

Preorder there.

Plus there are different versions ranging from 462.27 to 1564.37

And here's a clip of the software used to change up the keys:

And they are working on this too: (its only a concept, but it looks awesome)

Optimus Tactus does not have physical keys, which means there are no restrictions on their shape and size.

I might considering getting this if it was under $200, but I don't think that it will be happening anytime soon....

To get the keyboard with just one oled key, it runs around $500

The Tactus is going to have the same problem as all of the other virtual keyboards. People don't generally like typing on a keyboard that gives no tactile feedback. If they can find a way around that then it could be really sweet. Plus it would have niche uses of course, but as a general use keyboard I'd pass.

i like resting my fingers on the keys. if you cant do that with the tactus, id hate it.
