It looks like the Optimus Maximus, a keyboard that integrates an LED in each of its 114 keys, will be ending its odyssey later this year and finally go on sale. The developer, Art Lebedev, will begin taking pre-orders on May 20 for $1564 per unit, which will make the Maximus the most expensive computer keyboard on the market.

Art Lebedev currently projects a first production run of 200 keyboards that are expected to become available by November 30 of this year, with 200 more following in December and 400 more in January 2008.

Detailed specifications of the keyboard are promised to be published on May 20.
