The coolest keyboard I've ever seen

Imagine a keyboard with tiny little "monitors" on each key that display the context of what it represents within the application you are working on, or the language you are typing in.

Typing in Russian? The keys show up in a Cyrillic alphabet. Working in Photoshop? Icons of the shortcut keys appear in their respective locations.

I cannot wait for this to hit the market. Well, to hit the market, lose its novelty, and come down in price.

I don't know yet; I don't think it's even been brought to market. The site (click the post title) says it'd be less expensive than a good cell phone, which I interpret as a couple hundred bucks.

Thanks for the link, I'll get a paper route, collect old beer cans, sell plasma, anything, to get one of these.

Well, maybe not the plasma. I like my plasma.

The Photoshop keyboard would be too cool! There's too much stuff on that program for me to remember it all. If it was on the keyboard...geez, I'd be in business.

A couple of days ago. I usually do it about every six months. Cheap and easy!
