  1. Cute idea, but I think they’ve missed the point. The noise is a necessary — albeit welcome — environmental factor in using the typer. It’s clever, although the “ding-on-every-press-of-the-Enter-key” function would get old REALLY fast, IMHO. I’m sure that’s much easier than rigging up the software equivalent of the margin-warning bell, though.

    As long as nobody is keychopping to make one of those gaudy “steampunk” keyboards to complete the experience, I wouldn’t be too sad to sit in a room with someone using this. I’m surely more immune to the noise than your average coffee-shop patron, and it would give me the chance to show how really quiet some typers can be.

  2. A program called Tappy Type did this for Macs in the ’90s, before System X. It never amused me much, personally.

    On my routine searches for videos to post on Tuesday, I stumbled across this as well – but I wasn’t very enthusiastic either. And I think they somehow messed up the margin bell.

  4. Richard, I remember Tappy Type! It was extremely annoying.

    I used it for 15 minutes, then trashed it.
