Kustom Keyboard Kapers

We’ve been following the pricy, exotic Optimus keyboard for a while, with its promise of a tiny display on every key.  This feature would let you connect the key’s image to a specific program or function, which may help users with cognitive disabilities.  Now a modestly-priced ($US135) knock-off arrives: regular-looking keyboard, but with 9 extra keys that have monochrome (yellow on black) icon capabilities.  It comes with a software utility that will convert any image into a key’s icon.  We’re buying one just to play Hollywood Squares.
