Default Velocity sensitive computer keyboard?

Is there such thing as a computer keyboard thats velocity sensitive? i.e knows how hard your hitting the keys?
If not, its a great idea I think.

For example a harder press would count as a capital letter, and softer ones, a standard letter, because I type rather softly usually.

It'd also be great for people with synths, that want a cheap method of starting off samples, etc at different volumes.

they have that stuff on the PS's and Xboxs, dont think there a keyboard with pressure sensitivity though. it would be hard to control, i type so fast that i dont even tell how hard i press sometimes, you also type harder when your anger, although you probably dont notice it.

Yeah, and with anger usually comes with caps lock on

It'd be an interesting idea.

For a text mode, you'd only have 2 velocities so you could make it so you had to hit rather hard to get a captial letter, that you wouldn't normally.

But imagine using it as a pad, with patches on each key. That'd be amazing if it was velocity controlled.
