The Adaptive Keyboard. Microsoft's Applied Sciences Group has produced a prototype LCD keyboard that is entirely customizable and can act as a touch input device. It's got see-through keys with a liquid-crystal display underneath.
The Adaptive Keyboard concept is now part of the Student Innovation Contest at the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology. We hope the participating students will come up with truly unique and valuable uses for this particular evolutionary input device concept. http://blog.seattlepi.com/micr.....source=rss
