Post Configurator v19 suggestion
I was posting on the message board for the World of Warcraft PC layout, when I thought of a great idea that would have far reaching possibilities for the Optimus Keyboard.

At first I was thinking that what we really need is a WoW addon that will auto populate some of the keys with the correct icons of the spells you have bound to them. It could start with the number keys and the icons on bar1. Later maybe being able to configure in the addon which bar to map icons for the number pad (where - and + on keypad are last 2 keys) and the application buttons on the left side of the keyboard (knowing that there are only 10 buttons, so the last 2 icons will not be represented on the keyboard).

Now I am not a programmer, but this doesn't seem to far fetched! I also think this could drive a lot of keyboard sales as there are MILLIONS of WoW players. (hint hint, Art.Lebedev Studio ;-)

Secondary brilliant thought... What if the graphics of the keys actually came from a piece of the actual monitor display. Maybe you could draw selection boxes on the screen as the live graphics for a button. That way the keys on the keyboard would always have the correct icon, even if you have in the game function changed based on in-game variables (such as if target is help or harm). This could also make the keyboard super useful for lots of other games without the need to do special programming.
The best way I could think of for drawing the selection boxes and assigning them to keyboard button displays is through the use of a screenshot taken in-game and a special program of some kind.

What does everyone think?
