jaasta_e-inkDepending on where you’re from, your keyboards will be sold to you either in English or feature characters from your native language. This is usually a choice that users have to make as they would have to decide whether their base language should be English or their native tongue, especially since these characters are pretty much etched onto the keys themselves.

This is unlike virtual keyboards where you can switch languages at a touch of a button. Well if you wanted a similar feature for your regular keyboard, you might be interested in the Jaasta Wireless E Ink Keyboard. As the name suggests, this is a keyboard that uses an e-ink screen behind each individual key.

From there users will be able to switch languages whenever they want and have the corresponding keys reflect those changes. On top of that, the keyboard will also sport a 3.5-inch multi-touch touchpad and a display where users can see the time, the language, battery life, and so on.

Unfortunately this also means that the keyboard will not come cheap. The device is priced at a whopping $300 which is mighty expensive as far as keyboards are concerned. However if you don’t mind paying that much, the company has announced that they are planning on opening up pre-orders soon, so if you’d like to learn more, pop on over to its website for the details.
