The Optimus’ Retarded Cousin: Luxeed Interactive Keyboard

luxeedBy David Ponce

If you’re not interested in buying a yet-to-be-produced, overhyped and probably imaginary $1,200 OLED keyboard, then perhaps I can interest you in an incredibly cheezy, possibly useless alternative. The Luxeed, from Luxiium Lighting & Technology, is a keyboard that can change the color of every single key, independently of each other. Each key can be tuned to one of “512 vibrant colors”, and in that sense can become an independent pixel. You can then download color skins from the website, or create your own. The keys can even be set to dance along with music and the Korean company is marketing the product by trumpeting its chromatherapeutic benefits.

We just think it’s sort of dumb, although there are bound to be the few and far between among you who’ll find it adorable. For you, we should tell you that we didn’t find any price information and if you’re really bent of getting one, you’ll have to trudge through a Korean website. So there.

    Looks like the price is selling for 10,000 Korean wons for the deTA 100, and 30,000 Korean wons for the deTA 200 model. So plug in those values + korean won into google and you can see how much the conversion rate gives you. Keep in mind you still have to battle with shipping prices, import tax, and worse of all, emailing them and figuring out how to order it. Also, the link to see the site in english isn’t working (neither do the links for the other supported lanugages other than Korean) so hopefully that’ll be fixed up soon.

    Yeah, unless you’re looking to learn a new language or have glacial patience your best bet is to hit yourself in the head with a rock (remember the Sega ads?)…Wait! All is not lost! Check out the “Special Order” page at ‘www.dynamism.com’…
