Concept Shows What an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Looks Like with an OLED Touch Bar

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is adamant that one of the standout hardware features of a next-geneation MacBook is an OLED display which would replace the row of physical function keys. If that’s the case, and knowing how Apple works, we might easily see this OLED touch bar come to a next-generation Magic Keyboard.

That’s precisely the idea behind an interesting OLED Magic Keyboard concept by German magazine, realized in co-operation with Dutch 3D artist Martin Hajek.

“The Macbook with OLED keys is all the rage. But hey, why only the Macbook? This is where the Magic Keyboard with OLED comes into play,” the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Felix Disselhoff, tells me in an email message.

And then artists jumped into the fray, conceptualizing what a MacBook Pro with an OLED touch bar would look like, and what features it could bring to the table. All-in-all the concept looked amazing, and now another series of concept images have surfaced, but this time tuned towards Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard. And then, most recently, macOS even referenced an OLED touch bar.
“Since the display is touch sensitive, its visual appearance would be customizable—with either individually adaptable favourite keys or specifically assigned keys for apps,” the magazine explains.

So what do you guys think, is an OLED Apple keyboard a possibility or not? And don’t tell me you don’t like Curved’s conceptual renderings.
