Optimus Upravlator keyboard

Overview   Workstations   Subscription  

Task: Design a touch-screen with tactile feedback.


Optimus Upravlator is a completely new kind of input device aimed at the media professionals. It features a 10.8 inch color LCD (800 ×600 pixels resolution) with 12 see-through buttons occupying its surface. Each of them has five contact points—center, top, bottom, left and right—freely assignable to user interface elements in the software of your choice.


Inside Upravlator

An optional folding stand allows you to place the keyboard in the most ergonomic position and orientation available in your workspace.


Unfolded

Besides the power supply cord, Upravlator uses another two cords for connection to a computer (USB and VGA). To plug the video cable, the second monitor port (available in most configurations) or the second video card are used (the choice of the video card is up to you, it’s not part of the standard package).


Folded

Upravlator uses open standards and protocols, which will make it easier for developers to create applications. The device is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.

Expected to be available for sale in the second half of 2008.

Patents pending.
