This can be achieved with a vibrato device (in the guitar) that can tense or release the strings to any previous set tuning. SO you can -say-
Play led zeppelin "heart braker" and without switching guitar, just adjusting a lever you can play "kashmir" on a different tuning.
No guitar change. You
can aslo be creative and play different chords on different parts of a song using different tunings, hot switching between them, in no time.
Has DADGAD and several others preset. [tatterdemalion, May 16 2009]

||Like it. [+] Individual string auto-tensioners. Although they would need to be disabled once you start to play or else they will be adjusting the tension in response to the string being plucked or whatever.

||BEAUTYFUL! and so much better that I have tought.
A bit expensive, though.
||It's been 5 years and maybe more
since I first set eyes on you
The best years of my life gone by,
Here I am alone and blue.....
||[+] I thought that they have stomp boxes that do that already. But it would be good as a mechanical device on the instrument itself if you were playing "unplugged".
||Per [angel]'s link the Hipshot Trilogy hardware bakes this nicely, is widely known to exist (amongst guitarists I would aver), and has the added advantage of describing the mechanism!.
