Known widely for the ambitious/crazy Optimus Maximus, the first keyboard with OLED screens for keys, Russian design house Art Lebedev has just unveiled its successor, Optimus Popularis. It’s a looker.

Details don’t extend much beyond what we can see here: the key caps are now practically all screen, whereas on the Maximus, a border frame cut down on the size of the visible portion. Also new is an overall much sleeker design, and a neat display bar that is home to several nicely designed widget readouts.

Pricing here is “under $1,000,” but I wouldn’t expect it to be too far under.
