Art Lebedev design studio has announced its new keypad named Optimus Pultius, which may be added to any personal computer or keyboard. The new device will feature programmable keys with screens inside every key and will have similar functionality as the Optimus Mini Three, the device Art Lebedev launched back in 2006.

The Optimus Pultius keypad will have 15 programmable keys with OLED screens inside, a major improvement over Optimus Mini Three (which has three keys only) and may be plugged to any computer to support either Optimus or any other keyboard. The Pultius will make it considerably easier to use programmable keys, it can be expected. Optimus Configurator software suit will allow to create different pre-sets with different functionality for each key in various programs.

The new keypad from Art Lebedev features the same concept as the well known Optimus Mini Three, however, with greater number of keys it will be more useful for various categories of clients. It is unclear whether the design studio will continue to sell its Mini Three after the Pultius hits the market.

Art Lebedev claims that the Optimus Pultius will be available late in 2008 or early in 2009, which is pretty far from now. The company did not unveil the price, but since OLED screens as well as other electronics components inside Optimus are pretty expensive, the new Pultius will hardly be a truly affordable product.
