Microsoft UnMouse Pad Prototype
Microsoft and New York University have collaborated on a project to develop The UnMouse Pad. The UnMouse Pad was created by Ken Perlin and utilises Force-Sensing Resistors to create one giant, mouse pad-sized circuit. The technology behind the UnMouse Pad is reportedly dirt cheap as well, which means we may hopefully see it introduced into consumer markets.
In the last part of the video, you can see the insane amount of input points the UnMouse Pad can track, and the rising bars indicate the amount of pressure applied at each point (especially when I press my whole hand on the pad)

Hi i just obtained a ASUS P5Q DELUXE MOBO, coupled with a Q9450. After reading some online post through other websites, i've found out that some the lever for securing the processor to the motherboard has a stipulated amount of times it can be used. After the stipulated amounted, the manufacturer cannot assure the user that the CPU would be functioning under normal circumstances. By the way the number of times - 20 times? How true is it and to what extend? Hope to hear from you guys soon thank you.

I've replaced chips in motherboards well over 20 times so far. Maybe even close to 40 times. No visible damage as yet.

Must have swapped the cpu on my IP35 Pro 10-15 times, and its still strong as it was when I put it in the 1st time.

Everything will break if you stress it enough but it shouldn't be a concern.

If that is going to happen then good thing you kept your motherboard reciept coz it needs to be RMAed

Where are you getting this? Load of BS anyway. They would design the lever better than that anyway.
