Touch Sensitive Keys Form Capital Letters When Hit Harder

Or otherwise equip each key to have an upper case mode.

Push them upwards slightly?

       Frustrated, pressured typists would get even more frustrated and stressed. Maybe, still have the shift key as a safety valve.   

       It would generate more complex key button sensors and large datasets which may lead to polygraph keyboards on employees or lovers.

       This may not be a terrible idea. When I type normally, I just type. I think a smart key could correctly recognise an intentional upward swipe, for instance. Just turn every key into a tiny trackpad, and you could have multiple options (swipe up for capitals, down for alternate or accented characters, etc).   

       On the other hand, it's a lot simpler to have one additional key on an 80-key keyboard, than to have 80 more complex keys. So maybe it's a terrible idea.

       Just have a learning algorithm crunch everything you a have ever typed, written, said, spoken out aloud from dreams and it will finish the sentence for you, capitals and all.   

       Begs the question whether a person can say something completely new, a leap from the surface of their own conscious constructed ocean?
