I've always wondered if it was possible to be able to tell the words someone was typing on their keyboard from the clitter-clatter(Noise they make.) on their keyboards. I personally think it's possible but it would involve a lot of different scales that it would have to go off of. What're your thoughts on this?

Have you seen the movie Sneakers(1992), they've used a tele-photo lens to view the keystrokes from an adjacent building. You maybe right, any thing is possible but wouldn't a key logger be a lot more simpler.

I guess so but just the thought of it kind of scared me at the time. What if someone actually found a method to do such a thing and you're in the library typing & you happen to mention something private or personal?(something I would never do unless i'm on my own computer, lol but yeahh.)

Well that is difficult .. to be exact impossible. The make of the keyboard is same for all the keys and it doesnt differ from one key to another. So its difficult to identify which key is pressed , it is easy with a Piano though but not with the Computer keyboard.
