    Okay, everyone wants folding machines, and everyone wants physical keyboards, and no one can afford / justify putting screens on each key as the Optimus keyboards did (at least on a portable unit), so why not combine all of these?

    Imagine a machine like to a Lenovo Yoga Book w/ two displays --- add to that an origami cover w/ an integrated transparent keyboard which can be folded so as to be either underneath the second display (out of the way) or laying on top of the second display, allowing an image of the current keyboard layout to shine through, but affording some measure of tactile feedback for typing.

    <<...add to that an origami cover...>>

    ...Having a hard time visualizing what you are describing. Two displays, hinged together ("Yoga Book") with a third something keyboard...???

    Unfortunately, it's probably sufficiently detailed to patent.
