Future MacBook Pro could use deformable touchscreen keyboard instead of mechanical keys

A future MacBook Pro may do away with mechanical keyboard mechanisms entirely to eliminate issues with debris, by using a force-sensitive surface on a flexible area of the MacBook’s casing to mimic the pressing of keys.

Over the years, Apple has received complaints about its MacBook Pro keyboards, especially for the butterfly mechanism, with key death being an issue among users. The ability for the mechanism to be jammed up with debris led to Apple introducing a membrane in 2018, but even that inclusion wasn’t enough for it to rethink its key mechanism usage.

The main issue is that it is practically impossible for Apple to create a keyboard that can be protected from the elements using conventional keyboard design techniques. Even if Apple internalizes most of the mechanism, there still has to be a protrusion to allow the externally-facing key to actuate, with the required holes being

Glorious Modular Mechanical Gaming Keyboard – GMMK Review

Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing

While many of our readers may be unaware that PC users have a whole culture who delve much deeper into mechanical keyboard than one would even think possible. There is a whole other part of the mechanical keyboard market, where you can buy curly cables, PCBs, switches, keycaps, and all other components down to the very last detail. We have also seen, over the years, a small handful of manufacturers who have gone to retail with keyboards which could have the switches changed, but up until now, the basic rule was that only one specific switch manufacturer could be used!

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion has set a world record in light enhancement — ScienceDaily

Physical Review X recently reported on a new optical resonator from the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology that is unprecedented in resonance enhancement. Developed by graduate student Jacob Kher-Alden under the supervision of Professor Tal Carmon, the Technion-born resonator has record-breaking capabilities in resonance enhancement.

A resonator is a device that traps waves and enhances or echoes them by reflecting them from wall to wall in a process called resonant enhancement. Today, there are complex and sophisticated resonators of various kinds throughout the world, as well as simple resonators familiar to all of us. Examples of this include the resonator box of a guitar, which enhances the sound produced by the strings, or the body of a flute, which enhances the sound created in the mouthpiece of the instrument.

The guitar and flute are acoustic resonators in which the sound reverberates between the walls of the resonator. In physics,
