Apple's future MacBook Pro keyboards could pack displays, haptic feedback, and capacitive touch sensors in each key, with the company filing a patent for multifunction buttons that could bring Optimus Maximus style flexibility.

The operation is pretty simple, zero in on an unsuspecting hard-for-cash victim; convince them to ride to the nearest Apple Store.
