'Synaptics' is on a mission to redesign the classic PC keyboard with its new touch-sensitive keyboards. Taking cues from the many high-tech features included on smartphone keypads, the new Synaptics keyboard includes a 'SmartBar' that will help to speed up your writing.

The SmartBar is the most impressive feature of the new touch-sensitive keyboards. It works by using turning the standard space bar on your keyboard into a touch-sensitive surface for using gesture control. Similar to the interface on your smartphone, the high-tech space bar will allow you to pinch to zoom in, swipe your thumb to select text and also access five other macro functions, including formatting text.

While these features may not seem like major time-savers, the few seconds the Synaptics touch-savvy keyboard saves you throughout each day will certainly add up over time.
