Optimus Mini Three Keyboard by Art Lebedev

Designed by Art Lebedev, Optimus mini is an auxiliary keyboard with three keys, each complete with an OLED screen displaying the current function. The keyboard is placed either horizontally or vertically: the images displayed on the keys are turned using the Optimus Configurator software.

Optimus mini is a blank sheet. It's hard to say what a usual monitor is worth until you open an image on it. The same goes for Optimus mini: the more plugins that support applications there are for Optimus Configurator, the more indispensable is the keyboard for daily use.

The support of applications depends on whether these applications' codes are open and whether there are plugins. The basic set of plugins is part of the standard package, however, we expect professionals and amateurs from all over the world to write most of them.

Optimus Configurator for Windows is now being completed. The keyboard's work under other operating systems is just a matter of time. Any programmer can connect Optimus mini to a computer with a USB port and set about creating his or her own configurator.
