Geekboard! or Keyboard ? You decide
Wow! iPhone 3G is creating a technological revolution with its innovative touch screen. So I just googled to know if there is any touch-screen keyboards available yet. The search God gave me the answer - Optimus Tactus, a concept design by artlebedev.com. Artlebedev.com is famous for another keyboard Optimus Maximus (pretty sure you read about them, if you are a geek.Hmm a little bit costly).
Okey okey I know you are curious to know what is important about this keyboard, Yeah it a truly next generation keyboard. So, can you guess what ? hmm... Optimus Tactus does not have physical keys.It means unlimited customization (hey,there are no restrictions on their shape and size), truly unlimited huh! .Any part of the keyboard surface can be programmed to perform any function or to display any images or even videos.
Optimus Tactus is still a concept design the major problem while making it from a dream to reality will be 'Making of an one sensor display keyboard'. Hey feel free to contribute if you have some geeky solution :)
You can find more details about Optimus Tactus on the official site
