Art Lebedev just started taking preorders for their Optimus Maximus OLED keyboard.

The firm says they will have 200 keyboards ready by late December, and another 400 keyboards will ship by early January.
Every key of the Optimus Maximus keyboard is a stand-alone OLED display showing the function it is currently associated with.

Optimus is equally good for any keyboard layouts—Cyrillic, Ancient Greek, Georgian, Arabic—and so on to infinity: notes, numerals, special symbols, HTML codes, math functions, images etc.

Every button on the keyboard is easy to remove in order to clean or replace. The service life of displays and their ribbon cables has been enhanced by making the screens embedded in the keytops motionless—it’s only the transparent caps that are pressed.
The keyboard has 113 small OLED displays, each display has a visible area of 10.1 x 10.1mm and has a resolution of 48 x 48 pixels.

If you're interested you can preorder the Optimus Maximus keyboard for 43,990 rubles, which is about $1,564.37 or €1,256.86.
