How long it took: right after Apple announced the new MacBooks Pro with Touch Bar, last week, a lot of people started to ask if this OLED bar would also reach other Macs Magic Keyboard external. We even discussed this quickly in our podcast # 204, which will be published today.
Because the designer Hazza42 published on Reddit a concept that he created with this in mind: what would the Touch Bar look like in a future new version of the Magic Keyboard?
Given all she is capable of, I think this is a pretty obvious path after all, users of iMacs, Macs mini and Macs Pro also deserve to enjoy the benefits brought by it.
I don't even think that battery, for example, would be a problem: as I said in my review of the Magic Keyboard, his current battery already lasts absurd (in my case, in heavy use, more than two months!) And Apple still I could embed a more powerful one to “hold” the Touch Bar. I just don't know about the price: outside the current one costs US $ 100 (here, R $ 650); I doubt nothing that this new one would come for at least twice that.

The reader Lucas Vallim decided to make his version, simpler / direct and really based on the current Magic Keyboard:
I just keep thinking: what if he became black? I think it would make even more sense. 😉
