Silent keyboard for silent typing


Is it really that weird for me to actually love the sound of typing on a computer keyboard? (Seriously, it's one of my absolute favorites.) I obviously don't think so, but it must be for something like the Silent Keyboard by Thanko to exist.

Despite its misleading in-house product code, which contains the word "siren" in it, this Japanese-layout USB keyboard uses silicone springs that enable it to produce only 6.0db of noise. Compared to the 30.9db created from typing on a standard keyboard and the 40db measured in a residential-area library late at night, there's no question that the Silent Keyboard is appropriately named.

On sale now for an oddly specific $33.17.
