Morse invented the Uni-Keyboard

Touch surfaces prompt me to ponder the keyboard and omni-present input interfaces.

My mind thinks of Samuel Morse. His Morse Code was essentially beautifully, simple one key keyboar.d

Morse Code. It had to be interpreted by humans, and therefore had to be sent slow enough for human processing.

What if you could speed up morse code signals (the human listening space between dits and dahs), and receive them via a computer that could interpret them instantly.

You would have nano morse code.
Nano Morse Code.
Norse Code.

What would be the data size difference of this sentence in morse code (digitized) vs. current character data encoding/reading algorithms?
