Alright so you’re sitting in a library or maybe you’re sitting in a campus classroom and you keep hearing this annoying typing from behind you. Alright so I know you’re not bothered by it really and neither am I and that’s why I just had to talk about this new piece of technology that has been developed. A company by the name of Thanko has come up with a keyboard which allows the user to type in a sound proof device, meaning that you can’t hear anything as the person is typing.
My first thought when learning about this new piece of technology was the people at Thanko must really hate keyboards and the sound they make and the only reason they even created such a piece of technology was they were so tired of people in their office typing so loudly that they all decided to travel into a room and brainstorm on a way to make the workplace quieter. They could have all lived with it like the rest of the world does every day, but they were bound determined to make those noisy typist understand that they were not going to take the loud sound of typing any longer. So, what did the people at Thinko do? Well they came up with this product that looks like a bag with a clear piece of plastic so that the person typing can see what they are doing. The price for such a revolutionary piece of technology will run you just around thirty six dollars so unless you are a super hacker who really wants to keep quiet and not be spotted by an enemy there really isn’t a reason for such a device to be bought in the first place.
This piece of technology is something that has people thinking, though I’m not sure it will be for the right reason. The fact that this piece of technology is expensive and not exactly practical makes it something that will probably never leave the shelves. Not only is the price for such technology a turnoff, but how in the world are you going to get anyone to use it themselves if they happen to have a noisy keyboard? The fact that anyone would have a noisy keyboard in the first place is something that I wouldn’t expect. Most keyboard companies have come a long way and most of the keys don’t make any sound at all anymore. All these reasons make this new piece of technology a short lived venture, but I have to give Thinko some credit, at least they thought outside the box and created something that no one else thought of.
