Keypad gets Optimus treatment

After producing the world's most stupendously expensive keyboard, the Optimus Maximus - the one with tiny customisable OLED screens on each key - Art Lebedev has turned his attentions to the external number pad.

Normally the preserve of figure-happy accountants and spread sheet addicts, the simple application of 15 mini displays has turned it into object of gadget desire that will no doubt command an eye watering price when it goes on sale at the end of the year - if you believe Art's notoriously elastic release dates.

No price details have been announced yet but it should in theory be more affordable than the £940 asking price of the Maximus. It even has an extra built-in USB port and an SD card reader so that'll save a few quid on buying separates.
