Uh-oh, Optimus: United Keys partners with FoxConn to build OLED gaming keyboards
reality -- United Keys, which has been pimping various versions of its Display Keys product since 2005, has just announced that it's signed a deal with FoxConn to build a gaming keyboard with several OLED function buttons, and thats it's aiming to ship by summer. Interestingly, United Keys told us it holds two US patents and several foreign patents on the tech, and that it's searched for Art Lebedev's claimed Optimus patents but "can't find anything." Fair enough, but there are definitely some other similar patents on the books, like Elkin Acevedo's "display keyboard" patent, and Apple's recent filing. Looks like there's a giant, dorky light-up keyboard fight in the works, eh?
