Floor Mat Becomes Security Feature via USB ProxMat

Imagine stepping away from your computer was all that’s needed to lock your computer?  It’s a great idea, too bad ProxMat thought of it first.  Their USB Mat is a pressure sensitive floor mat which locks your computer when you step off/away. The ProxMat activates the Windows Key + L shortcut to lock down your computer.
