The Quest for a Silent Keyboard

The Quest for a Silent Keyboard
Nicko Margolies

To some, the pitter-patter of fingers across a keyboard is a noise they could do without — and now, there’s a product for them.  Japanese computer accessory company, Thanko, recently unveiled the second version of their silent keyboard.

For around $50, the unique data entry device will drop the mind numbing noise of your keyboard to 44.5 dB, that’s 16.5 dB lower than the average. While the device is only being sold in Japan, you can bundle it with Thanko’s silent mouse and get it state-side for $77 through GeekStuff4U.  Hopefully the secret keyboard silencing technology will spread to more manufacturers and we can all enjoy a slightly quieter workspace.
