I want to add an additional grid of 6x4 keys that can be mapped to any function. Where can I find such a product?

They exist, but it looks like a lot of them are for industrial/commercial use, and all the ones I can find are pretty expensive (check out this manufacturer's website).

It would probably be cheaper and easier to get a programmable gaming keyboard.

This is the closest thing I found. It comes with 25 keys, so you could build a quick 4x6 matrix, or do something else if you wanted to.

+1 - That's cool! (but expensive) – JNK Sep 7 '10 at 19:31

From the makers of the Optimus Maximus keyboard. Unfortunately the Optimus AUX is only a prototype.

enter image description here

Each key has a little screen 48 x 48 pixels that can display at 10 frames per second.

I would guesstimate that the price of this would be around US$600-800 if it were to be made available.

A three key version has been available, but is sold out with no indication of future availability.

That looks awesome! It is, however, way outside my price range. – Ryan Michela Sep 8 '10 at 13:32
