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!
