Optimus Popularis keyboard shows up in pictures

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

Art Lebedev now has a first render of the Optimus Popularis keyboard. Looks pretty sexy and worth the wait. The studio says that it will still cost less than $1000 when it eventually arrives. Look at how cool those new chiclet keys with typewriter spacing look.

You’ll also notice that the numpad is now gone, but apparently the FN key will make it all right. This long awaited keyboard is looking very sweet!

Optimus Popularis to get more touch-sensitive keys

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2010

Art Lebedev today said that the upcoming Optimus Popularis keyboard might actually be easier to use than its larger Maximus sibling. Each key is fractions of an inch smaller in every direction and the actual touch surface will run nearly to the edge of the key.

This will guarantee that the keys will be easier to hit as it will be virtually impossible to miss the sweet spot. The Popularis is expected to ship in 2011 and should be physically smaller and also cheaper than its $460 predecessor. It will likely still be a standard USB keyboard but will have both Mac and Windows software to let users reprogram the labels on the keys.

Optimus Popularis keyboard due next year

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2010

Feeling like it’s time to upgrade that Optimus Maximus keyboard? Maybe something a bit smaller? Well, the Popularis, which was announced about two years ago is coming along nicely and on target to start production later this year with a release in 2011.

The Popularis will have full-color keys, but apparently they are not OLED this time. We won’t know an exact price until it arrives, but we are hoping it’s cheaper than the $1,000 price they originally quoted.

Optimus Popularis prototype on the web
The Optimus Popularis is growing up right before our eyes. Ahhh isn’t it cute? We’ve watched it go from mockup to a neat looking 3D prototype. It’s got a full-length display on the space bar and everything. I’m so proud of it.

They grow up so fast, but what can you do. Before you know it, they’re fully grown and set out with a price of their own. What do you think, will this be easier to type with? Hopefully it won’t take long to develop.
