Apple packed its latest event with countless examples of why the new TouchBar feature on its updated MacBook Pro will make your life inconceivably better. But the company should have just started and finished with this Nyan Cat animation that flies across the new touch-sensitive display strip.

Apple’s MacBook Pro series is back in the media thanks to the company’s announcement of the new “Touch Bar”.
Announced last Thursday, the Touch Bar uses retina display and multitouch technology to replace the MacBook Pro's top row of static function keys. It might seem like a simple idea, but it builds on a long history of research on what is referred to as “human–computer interaction”.
The first thing I did, when presented with the new Macbook Pro, was reach for that dimly lit display just above the keyboard. The new Touch Bar is the most exciting part of the new MacBook Pro. It's a Retina strip that sits on top of the keyboard (Retina commonly denotes a super high DPI) and is a replacement for the function keys that have existed on laptops for what feels like forever.
