Microsoft Modern Keyboard Brings Biometrics To The Desktop


If the deluge of Microsoft hardware hadn't caught you attention before now, this announcement will probably have passed you by, but Microsoft has returned to its hardware roots, releasing a new input device, looking very much like an updated Surface keyboard.

The Surface Keyboard hasn't been around for long, so its replacement is a bit of a surprise. Until you find out about the hidden fingerprint reader, which brings biometric security to all Windows 10 devices, but will be of particular interest to desktop owners missing other Windows hardware to do the job for them.

Windows Hello is a default component of Windows 10 and as a result you can be sure that the experience will be as smooth and seamless as it is on every other Windows Hello device.

Microsoft continues to bring its A game to hardware, even peripherals seem to be getting more attention to detail than before. Building a premium sub-brand from Surface - so wildly unlikely even four years ago, now seems to be all but complete.
