Slim keyboard users can recognize themselves and with power




At a time when all the equipment is made smarter keyboard can not stay behind. A smart keyboard Georgia Institute of Technology can not only recognize who the keys, but also provides self-powered.

According to the makers of the smart keyboard is not only recorded if a key is pressed, but also how much power this entails, and how much time there is between two keystrokes. That reports PhysOrg. This would have resulted in a pattern that differs per person, and thus can be used for identification and security. A test shows that the keyboard can keep most people from each other, although there is a small margin of error.

But the keyboard, by scientists at George Institute of Technology has developed more gizmos on board. With each keystroke, a small electrical current generated by the power used. In addition, there is a layer placed on the keys, that receives the electrical signals coming from the fingers. This would allow enough power can be generated for a wireless transmitter that sends the keystrokes to the PC. Because of the manner in which the keyboard is built, it is also an additional moisture-resistant. It can therefore safely coffee spill.

The makers think they can put their smart keyboard for a competitive price in the market because they use cheap, commonly used materials. However, there are no details on a commercial release, so interested people probably should have patience.
