The design problem with the Optimus OLED Keyboard

`The URL is from a company that could make the OLEDs used in the keyboard. The Russian designers recently alluded to the problem. The OLEDs (lots of them) need POWER!!. This means the keyboard may need an electrical connection, as well as a ‘wired’ connectivity to the PC. Apparently the prototypes did not actually address this. Nothing wireless..’

    Yeah, and extra power supply is bit of a turn-off in my book 🙁 I’d still like one though.

    Yeah, I’m still dead keen to get one. It’s more the cost than any extra power cables that is likely to stop me getting one.

    Not sure how big the power demands are really going to be. Possibly a dual-USB cable [like those portable HD’s enclosures sometimes come with] might be enough to run it.

    Failing that, I’m sure it’ll be nothing more than the usual sort powerpack you get with any peripheral that requires external power. Not too much of a big deal.
