The SonarLocID keyboard from Key Source International Inc. is an innovative computer peripheral that protects a user’s sensitive data on a shared computer at times when they forget to log off from it.

The keyboard is equipped with an integrated sonar that monitors the presence of the user at the computer and as soon as it detects them stepping away from the workstation, it immediately locks it, thus preventing any of the data to be viewable to others. SonarLocID also features a badge ID reader and a fingerprint reader to add an extra layer of security and connects to the computer via USB.

Here’s a video of this new auto-locking keyboard:
