Patent filing shows Apple working on Optimus-like OLED keyboard


If you’ve spent any amount of time on tech sites like this one, you’ve surely heard of the Optimus keyboard. It uses OLEDs in place of “regular” keys. One minute a key open Safari the next it open Photoshop. Like the picture! According to a recent patent filed last March (but only revealed recently), Apple is working on a keyboard just like the Optimus.

Maybe with Apple R&D behind this type of keyboard it’ll actually see the light of day, unlike the as-yet vaporware Optimus.
