All those random taps on your touchscreen display might not be so random after all. There could be a pattern to it. The way you interact with it is so unique that the researchers from Georgia Tech have created a software that can lock down your tablet if someone else is using your machine.
The LatentGesture system constantly monitors how a user interacts with a touchscreen device. And over time, it can generate a "touch signature" for them. If someone foreign uses your machine, the system will spot the difference in the movements. After that it gets locked down.
