Forget processor speed, storage, memory, screen resolution and even apps. The real test of a gadget's worth is whether or not it can run Doom, which means that the Optimus Maximus keyboard, with it's re-programmable LCD keys, is finally worth dropping $US1500+ ($2000+) on.

Art Lebedev Studio's latest creation is this wonderful Lampus desk light that features three illuminated segments that can be individually activated and directed to spread light across an entire desk, or even an entire room.
Art Lebedev's studio is best known for its flashy glowing Optimus keyboards, but the firm dabbles in other clever designs too. Like merging a USB flash drive with a safety pin creating four gigs of storage you're unlikely to lose.
Even though it's bound to burn a hole through your desk, I still kind of want this thing. Yet another "classic" from Art Lebedev, the Svintus plug pig has 17 Type F sockets for all your Russian power needs.
After being hit with delays, Art Lebedev's scaled-down Optimus keyboard, the Mini Six, has finally hit the production line, the company confirmed via their LiveJournal (yes, really.)
I would never condone shooting any living creature in the head with a laser gun, especially not a helpless little pooch like the one you see above, but on the other hand I'm not going apologise for finding Art Lebedev's concept dog leash a little bit clever. (And, OK, disclaimer: I'm a cat person! There!)
The creative minds of Art Lebedev have once again thought of something interesting to do in the USB world - cardboard. The design team's concept "Fleshkus" memory sticks are supplied on printed card, with users able to tear one off as needed and write a description straight onto the back.
Art Lebedev's Optimus Maximus keyboard, which had individual screens on every key, was an extremely ambitious product that didn't quite justify its high cost. Can the followup Optimus Popularis do better?
After hearing nary a peep from the Art Lebedev guys about their Optimus Popularis keyboard from years back, they've taken to their LiveJournal (LiveJournal!!!) blog to say production will begin "later this year", with "the release likely in 2011".
Art Lebedev is known for designing products that serve as elegant solutions for complex problems. If your problem is, "I can't figure out how to use this damn camera," his Fleximus concept is the solution for you.
Your typical wall socket just sits there defeated by life, making no decent effort to prevent the inevitable pwning by a 10-socket surge protector. Art Lebedev's Rozetkus socket, however, transforms from 2D to 3D.
Art Lebedev's Swissarmius is the Swiss Army Knife of storage containers. As you can see, it organises your utensils in a way that mimics the classic Victorinox design.
