A new style keyboard which is user friendly and can be used efficiently in a small area is proposed in this paper. The most pre-existing keyboards were using the style of selecting a key among the arranged keys even the formats of key arrangement and the ways of using them were different. A new style of information input device called Dynamic Keyboard(DynaKey) is designed in this paper. Dynakey is a useful information input device which can be used efficiently for a mobile device with small display and for handicapped persons who has difficulties of selecting precise positions.
