- Microsoft's newest keyboard has a built-in fingerprint reader
- It lets you log-in to your computer with a simple tap
- The keyboard is a bit expensive, at $129.99
Microsoft launched a new keyboard with a built-in fingerprint reader on Monday.
The keyboard, officially known as the Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, lets you easily log in to a Windows 10 machine with the tap of a finger. It supports Bluetooth, which means you don't need to plug it in and can easily tote it around without having to worry about wires.

The new keyboard isn't cheap, but offers a compelling solution for quickly logging into a computer without having to worry about memorizing a password or code. Just tap the button and carry on with your work. It uses Microsoft's Windows Hello technology, which is the same tech that allows some webcams to recognize a user's face to unlock a computer.
The new keyboard is available now for $129.99, which is a hair expensive for my taste.
