Probably this could be an initial stride towards bigger things in the future for energy harvesting using piezo electric. What is more interesting will be how the amplification of tiny energy into useful energy will be achieved.

This result is very interesting. If the concept can be carried into mass production effectively, this could certainly improve quality of life for a lot of people.

Not noticeably. The piezoelectric films are thin, and the energy harvested per keystroke is small.

According to Conservation of energy, will the keyboard becomes stiffer? Will the piezoelectric film affect the blood flood?
