    Computer systems researcher Christian Sax and his colleague Hannes Lau from the University of Technology Sydney, unveiled a new kind of keyboard technology that morphs itself around around the user's fingers, by breaking down the keyboard to chunks of keys that a finger is most likely to hit. This technology ensures faster typing, particularly in touchscreen devices such as tablets. By now you may have guessed that LiquidKeyboard is in fact a virtual-keyboard application, but the concept itself opens up many possibilities. Think of keyboards that are entirely made of touchscreen, coupled with Senseg's revolutionary haptic touchscreen technology. If nothing, this one's going to bag a prize from James O'Loghlin.
