A seperate key for each letter.

A keyboard is used for data entry, being a board on which is fixed rows of keys.

I propose that each key is separate. Each key has a base, and a springy mechanism as it does now. But each one is self contained and separate.

The keys communicate wirelessly with each other and with the computer.

They can be stored in a bag!

You only need to have out as many as you need at that time.

You can arrange them in different orders for different tasks.

Each one can have a little mouse movement sensor on the bottom so that each key can be used as a minnie-mouse.

       Get multiple sets, and you can play Scrabble or Bananagrams!

       You can put a stick on the bag, and shake it to generate gibberish quickly and easily. Enough shaking might also generate the works of Shakespeare!

       Can each key have a little set of wheels on the bottom to set up standard keyboard arrangements, make sentences, and/or screw with people?

       [voice], you mean self-powered and autonomouse? Excellent idea.
