Every key of the Optimus Maximus keyboard is a stand-alone display showing the function it is currently associated with. Optimus is equally good for any keyboard layouts Cyrillic, Ancient Greek, Georgian, Arabic, Quenya, hiraganaand so on to infinity: notes, numerals, special symbols, HTML codes, math functions, images etc. The service life of displays and their ribbon cables has been enhanced by making the screens embedded in the keytops motionless its only the transparent caps that are pressed. Every button on the keyboard (or, more precisely, a module with a moving cap, a microchip and a display) is easy to remove in order to clean or replace. Website: artlebedev.com

Worth mentioning
Due to some reactions in the comments, I decided to add another alternative keyboard. Thanks for mentioning this one people!

6. Dvorak Simplified Keyboard

The Dvorak layout was designed to address the problems of inefficiency and fatigue which characterized the QWERTY keyboard layout. The QWERTY layout was introduced in the 1860s, being used on the first commercially-successful typewriter. The QWERTY layout was designed so that successive keystrokes would alternate between sides of the keyboard so as to avoid jams. Some sources also claim that the QWERTY layout was designed to slow down typing speed to further reduce jamming.
