#ProjectIdea a keyboard where each keycap is a small display that shows you what that key does, even if the keys are remapped. Pressing modifier keys like Shift or Fn should change the keycaps display.

Now make it mechanical and a lot more ergonomic 😂 I guess making one would be really expensive, even if one doesnʼt want a profit. I also wonder how the E-Ink ones mentioned in the article perform during layer change; i mean, e-inks are not terribly fast to update even today, although i havenʼt seen small displays only ebook-sized ones. But that sounds like a good idea from power consumptionʼs point of view.
