French startup Nemeio debuted this CES with its first and namesake product, the Nemeio Keyboard, which the company proudly proclaims the "keyboard of the future." Keyboards with on-the-fly customizable keycaps date back to 2012 with the Art Lebdev keyboard, which uses colorful OLED keycaps so each key can be reprogrammed with a colorful keycap. The Nemeio Keyboard is similar in concept, but implements monochrome E-ink to draw the keycap marking, and common white LED as illumination.

E-ink is the same technology that drives popular e-readers such as Amazon Kindle. One advantage of E-ink over OLED would be persistence. The keyboard also locally stores customization, including keycap designs and their mapping. Nemeio predicts its keyboard will be a hit with multilingual environments, such as airport cafes, hotel business centers, or even large offices with diverse staff that need to use localized keysets; or even the content-creation industry. Nemeio Keyboard isn't yet in production. The company will crowdfund mass-production in 2019. Donors in the 300-500 EUR range could get one first.

As it's ANSI layout, it won't work properly with most ISO language layouts, which makes it a bit useless imho.
Can't say it looks very comfortable to type on for that matter.
I can't see too many people spending that much on a keyboard for that matter.
