More Details

Purpose & Benefits Provides users with a keyboard specifically engineered for optimal customization by enabling each key to be programmed to display anything from numbers to letters, symbols, video, and more. Utilizes a specialized computer program in order to configure the keyboard to a user’s needs and preferences. Works conveniently and efficiently on both PC and Macintosh operating systems. Features a TFT display underneath all keys on the keyboard, ensuring the keyboard display does not fade after extensive use. Offers a way for creative individuals such as artists, linguists, designers, typesetter, musicians, and more, to customize their keyboard and computer to fit their needs with various letters, numbers, symbols, and more. Problems Solved Creative people such as designers, artists, or musicians often struggle using a standard keyboard with their computer in order to complete their works. These types of people often require more than just numbers and letters, and they can often utilize various logos, symbols, videos, etc. in their work. Without these types of keys on a keyboard, individuals may not be able to fully utilize their creative expertise in their graphics, music, videos, and more. Detailed Description & Features Optimus Popularis is a highly unique compact keyboard with a base screen that enables each key to be programmed to display any number, letter, symbol, animation, video, logo, and more. The device is comprised of a thin keyboard with a number of small keys on the front surface. The upper portion of the keyboard, between the numeral keys and the function keys, is reserved to display a customized range of important information. Users can assign keys to unlimited letters, symbols, numbers, etc. by utilizing an easy-to-use computer software program. The configuration software enables a user to program each button to reproduce a sequence of symbols and edit images separately for each keyboard layout. The keyboard is connected to a computer via a USB port. The configuration software can be opened on the computer, and the user can begin to customize their keyboard. The keyboard configuration is based on the concept of layers. The layers contain information about images and functions assigned to each key. The layers can be assigned to a specific application or work across multiple applications depending on user preferences. Layers are added one by one with each new layer overlaying on top of previously configured layers. Two types of plugins can be utilized to extend functionality of the keyboard: display and action plugins. Display plugins display images on the keys while action plugins define key press actions. Each key can be assigned one display and one action plugin. Plugins can be assigned on customized layers only. Once the user has an idea of what he/she wants their keyboard to look like and function as, the user can begin assigning keys on the keyboard to desired numbers, letters, symbols, etc. through the configuration program. Further, the configuration program is designed to function on both PC and Macintosh hardware systems. Optimus Popularis measures approximately 11.5” in length, 7.3” in width, and 0.74” in height. The display on each key utilizes LCD lighting, and the body portion can be constructed using aluminum and plastic materials.
