Apple Patent Reveals MacBook With Touchpad Keyboard

Gee, I wonder if this has anything to do with making things even thinner.

Filed in September 2015, the patent is titled "Zero Travel," which could refer to the elimination of physical key travel, or movement, on a standard keyboard. Similar to the Force Touch trackpad on the existing MacBook and MacBook Pros, there would be no actual movement of parts, with the large touchpad instead using haptic feedback to communicate a key press when typing.
