New Optimus Keyboard – NASA Could Use Their Undo Button

The Optimus Keyboard is a brilliant twist on the traditional keyboard. Each key runs a OLED so a specific image illuminates the function of that specific key. This makes for an all-in-one design for multiple languages or program users who want to customize certain keypads, like a Photoshop user, or CAD designer. With customizable images the functionality is unlimited. Then again, are keyboards so expensive to manufacture an all-in-one design is needed?

This might be the exact keyboard NASA needs as they recently requested an undo button for satellite software upgrades. Apparently the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft experienced a “death-by-upgrade.” If the NASA folks had a customized undo button maybe they could undo their last software upgrade and find the lost satellite. Oh well, upgrades can be tough and bad timing too, as strong evidence was just coming back that water really was on Mars.
