    The Upravlator was mainly made for graphic design, but also features workspaces for video editing, 3D modeling, and sound engineering.
    Expected to be for sale by the second half of 2007.

    The main question though, will you designers use it?

    It's nice and fancy, and I can see it being marginally useful. For example, the Japanese layout keyboard that I use has no tilda key nor a + in the usual postion making zoom in work in some apps but not in others.

    But, overall...I don't see why you wouldn't just learn the keyboard shortcuts.

    I could see myself using it in Photoshop, but its not really something anyone would need.


    It's simply there just for the ease of using it, instead of memorizing certain keyboard shortcuts, it's all right there for you.

    ah one step closer to the optimus 113... now the keyboad will be useful. this seems more like a neat toy.
