USB Speedometer Gauges Wpm, Not Mph

by Paul Strauss

Think you’re a speed demon on your keyboard? This goofy gadget lets you figure out how fast you can type and displays it on a speedometer-like gauge as you click away feverishly on your computer.

USB WPM Speedometer

In addition to tracking your typing speed (in words-per-minute) the gauge also keeps a running total of how many words you’ve typed so far today. Just plug the speedometer into your USB port, install the included software, and you’re off to the races. The gauge tops out at a whopping 260 WPM, which is speedier than the even world’s fastest typist’s record 212 WPM (and that was on a Dvorak keyboard!)

The USB WPM Speedometer arrives this March at DrinkStuff for £19.99 (appx. $39 USD).
