Happy Hacking Keyboard Debuts in Silent Form

 |  |  |  June 17, 2011

Back when I had a real job with an office, the lady that worked in the office down from me had an old-fashioned keyboard that clicked loud enough to make you want to go postal. She drove me bonkers clicking away on it until I “accidentally” spilled a whole cup of soda into it to escape the clicks. I hated that keyboard.


The Happy Hacking Keyboard has been around for a while now and you can get the little keyboard with or without letters on the key tops. The thing about the little keyboards that many people like is the clicky typing and nice feel. The thing people that have to be near someone using a Happy Hacking Keyboard is the click.

So in support of those who prefer quiet, the company behind the Happy Hacking Keyboard has unveiled the Type-S. This is a new version of the keyboard with same style and features as the original models – only the keys are silent. The catch is the things are apparently only available in Japan. I hope you know someone over there; this may just save your sanity.
