Slashdot ran a story about the Optimus keyboard. The keyboard has LED technology, which allows a programmer to assign different colored pictograms to each key. Even more so, it is possible to animate the keyboard.

It seems that this keyboard is going to be Heaven for gamers, but also for serious programmers. Air Traffic Control consoles have been using a similar technology based on touch screens to make context-aware keyboard layouts for quite some time.

I cannot wait to give it a go; this might really be a useful innovation for interacting with computers. Something that I have not seen in a very long time (most likely, since the introduction of the mouse).
