The completely black keyboard is back for all the computer professionals and all geeks who spend many hours a day working on a computer and for whom typing productivity and comfort does matter. The new Das Keyboard II has been designed to produce even greater speed by providing responsive, tactile feedback with its new gold-plated and clicky high-end mechanical key switches.
Mechanical Gold-Plated Key Switches
We have teamed up with Cherry to equipe the Das Keyboard with the best and longest lasting key switches in the industry. By using gold plated key switches, Das Keyboard is rated up to 50 Million key strokes where as regular keyboards barely reach 10 to 15 Million strokes.
All Keyboards Are Not Born Equal
Das Keyboard compares and surpasses the legendary IBM model M. Its tactile feedback makes it extremely responsive. The sonore feedback (i.e. the click) is not as loud as the original IBM model M but definitively louder than a membrane keyboard.
Blank Keys to Type up to 100% Faster
Like on a piano, since there are no keys to look at when typing, your brain will quickly adapt and memorize the key positions. Within a few short weeks users increase their typing accuracy and find themselves typing up to 100% faster.
Scooped F and J Keys
Like on the original IBM typewriters, the home keys F and J have been specially shaped with an increased curvature so the user’s index fingers find their home position easily.

Optimus mini is an auxiliary keyboard with three keys, each complete with an OLED screen displaying the current function. The keyboard is placed either horizontally or vertically: the images displayed on the keys are turned using the Optimus Configurator software.
Optimus mini is a blank sheet. It’s hard to say what a usual monitor is worth until you open an image on it. The same goes for Optimus mini: the more plugins that support applications there are for Optimus Configurator, the more indispensable is the keyboard for daily use.
The support of applications depends on whether these applications’ codes are open and whether there are plugins. The basic set of plugins is part of the standard package, however, we expect professionals and amateurs from all over the world to write most of them.
Optimus Configurator for Windows is now being completed. The keyboard’s work under other operating systems is just a matter of time. Any programmer can connect Optimus mini to a computer with a USB port and set about creating his or her own configurator.
Size of the keyboard: 118mm (W) x 51.8mm (D) x 18mm (H)
Size of the keys: 32×32 mm
Keys display technology: OLED
Keys resolution: 96×96 pixels
Displaying animation: 5 frames per second
Colors displayed: 262000
