Microsoft has unveiled its new extraordinary patent, in which the tech giant Microsoft shows and demonstrated that how Microsoft wants to deploy all its ambitious innovations simply to make users live more handy, as it wants to put Fingerprint Sensor in keyboard keys.Although technology has moved towards facial recognition, by the likes of Apple’s Face ID and Windows Hello cameras, fingerprint reader still remains the most convenient biometric authentication system to unlock your device.
Microsoft is planning to integrate fingerprint sensors into keyboard keys. They have recently filed a patent “Keyset Fingerprint Sensor“, which can able to make unlocking your laptops and desktops a little bit easier.Microsoft has integrated the fingerprint reader into the second Windows key on the right-hand side of the keyboard, and it can be used to log into Windows 10 or websites using Windows Hello. The new Modern Keyboard will work with Windows 10, MacOS, and the latest versions of Android.Along with providing you a simple access option, this technology could fix a few drawbacks.For example, to integrate fingerprint sensors, manufacturers have to build a separate module. Some devices support external fingerprint scanners via USB, which is still difficult to manage, and even devices with inbuilt sensors need additional space, which affects overall design and size.
The keyboard, in a silver and gray finish, works either wired or via Bluetooth 4.0, with automatic pairing out of the box when you first connect the cable. It uses a rechargeable battery and is compatible with Windows 8-10, Windows 10 Phone, Android, and macOS, as long as the device supports Bluetooth 4.0 or higher. Naturally, Microsoft promises it will work particularly well with its new Windows 10 Surface Studio, Pro and Laptop devices.
As for the Modern Mouse, it really looks a lot better than past models, with a smooth, rounded aesthetic, nearly invisible buttons and a metal scroll wheel. It also uses Bluetooth 4.0, and Microsoft promises “exceptional precision,” though it didn’t reveal an exact PPI rating. It requires a pair of AAA alkaline batteries and is compatible with most operating systems and devices that support Bluetooth 4.0.
