The keyboard of my dreams


Art Lebedev has posted a design for a keyboard on which not only is each key programmable as to which character it produces, but each key also incorporates a tiny OLED screen, so the character shown on the key cap can change as well. This would be an absolute boon to those who type in more than one language. Unfortunately, it's likely to be too expensive for the developing world, at least at first.

On that page, he credits "Timur Burbayev" with "laying on of hands". Project exorcist? Masseur?
