The idea of a keyboard that changes to suit the task you're doing has been taken a step further than assigning functions to keys, but it's only a concept so far. There may be others with more than a concept but I don't know of them so until that time there's only one concept and it hasn't gone forward from there for a long time.

With the increase of touchscreen technology I don't see it being too big a hurdle for someone to create a physical keyboard of standard dimensions with a screen to suit. Capacitive screens are great for phones and tablets but for a keyboard I think resistive would be a better option. The possibilities are quite fantastic and I'm more surprised that someone hasn't taken the leap to do it yet.
