Pressure Sensitive Keyboard [Microsoft]
Microsoft has been working on uses for a pressure sensitive keyboard. One of the uses they've come up with is better password protection. Basically, it doesn't just know the key's you've typed, but also how you've type them [Gizmodo]. Okay, now I also want a pressure sensitive mouse: that would be awesome for photoshop.
Back to the keyboard. I agree this is a step forward in password protection, but say someone has a key logger on their computer. I bet the logger will be able to copy the pressure of your typing as well. So the lesson here is, stay away from key loggers!
