Microsoft has always made some pretty great keyboards and it’s keeping up with that tradition. The company has quietly announced its new Modern Keyboard. Not only does the Modern Keyboard look clean and premium, it also comes with a fingerprint sensor that’s neatly hidden within the keyboard itself.


The Modern Keyboard is Microsoft’s successor for its Surface Keyboard and it looks like its predecessor. The major changes include the fingerprint sensor as well as the ability to use a cable for connecting to a PC instead of the wireless connection.

The fingerprint sensor has been neatly hidden in the second Windows key that’s on the right-hand side of the keyboard. Users just have to place their finger on this key and the sensor will do the rest. The sensor can be used to log into a Windows 10 PC or websites via Windows Hello.

Microsoft’s Modern Keyboard isn’t just compatible with Windows 10. It can be used with MacOS and the latest versions of Android as well. Microsoft is going to release it soon for $129.99.

This may very well be one of the best keyboards that Microsoft has ever created. Whether or not customers feel it’s worth the price tag remains to be seen.
