Interesting Hoodie from Russia

From Russia, this might be an interesting design for bicycling clothes. I like the integrated, impossible to loss, gloves that allow no gap between the cuff and the glove. More of a winter fall idea but I saw it today so I posted it.

Check out the price for the computer keyboard on that site--$1,850+
Just how far has the dollar fallen again?

Did you look at how many different ways that keyboard can be configured? At the character-set options? Do you know what "quenya" is?

The keys on the Optimus keyboard are all little color OLED displays, and it can electronically change the pictures on them.
Their original price estimates went from like $400 to $750 to..... reality.

It is kinda neat, but not $1800 of neat.

I could see where it could be useful in a setting where you had an airport computer for travellers to use, and you needed it to work easily in different languages--but then, it's a heck of a lot cheaper to just use a touch-screen display with an on-screen keyboard anyway.

You do realize what that keyboard is, right?

Or what this whole studio is, right?

The keyboard is for Oligarchs that have to switch between selling gas to China, hiding their money in London, ordering their car in Germany, calming their mistress in Ukraine, and posting on bikeforums. All those character sets drive us nuts.

I liked the hoodie. I will not be paying $65, but I might stitch some gloves on to one of my long sleave biking shirts.
