We stopped reporting about the OLED keyboard a long time ago as delays just followed delays. Now the OLED keyboard is real, but the price is just not attractive. Artlebedev offers 4 configurations, 3 of them can be pre ordered right now.
The configurations include 1 active OLED button, 10 active OLED buttons, 47 OLED buttons and 113 OLED buttons.
The only really cool Optimus Maximus OLED keyboard is the full 113 active keys. For that you need to pay though $1,564.72.
It is disappointing that after 3 years they could not find a partner to bring this cool keyboard design to mass market production.
If you have the funds, you can order a Optimus Maximus OLED keyboard on the artlebedev store. See also the Optimus Maximus blog.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
