I Am TOM. I Like to TYPE. Hear That?

Computer keyboards make a mousy tappy tap tappy tap like ones you hear in a Starbucks — work may be getting done but it sounds cozy and small, like knitting needles creating a pair of socks. Everything you type on a typewriter sounds grand, the words forming in mini-explosions of SHOOK SHOOK SHOOK. A thank-you note resonates with the same heft as a literary masterpiece.

I’ve never used a typewriter but I bet it’s easy to recreate that sound in the computer keys like Coffitivity does for recreating coffee shop noise in your home. An advanced product, same effect, at home. That sounds good to me.
