Shape-shifting touchscreen

I wonder how far away this is from becoming consumer reality (widely available at a realistic price).

It’s a touchscreen that can actually provide the feel of texture based on what’s being shown on the screen.

Imagine a virtual keyboard that comes into view only when you tap on a textbox. The keyboard would actually feel like a keyboard – you could tell, by touch, where the edge of each key was.
