Is there such a thing as a keyboard where the key labels can change dynamically, i.e. if you change your layout the keys change to display the actual characters they're mapped to? Been googling for a while but I'm not even sure what terms to search for.

I remember Art.Lebedevs Optimus Maximus keyboard from a couple of years back, but I thinks it's not produced any more.

You can still buy it, but it will set you back $2000.00 :|

Dynamically? If by that you mean taking a model M, custom key caps, and popping them off one by one... then yes, definitely ;)

I see. Well, I bought a tenkeyless with Cherry MX Brown switches CMStorm QuickFire Rapid, which comes with its own key puller. I want to try a different layout and see if it makes my life any better. If it does I'll switch all my keyboards.
