Thanko releases silent keyboard for loud typists

Don’t you hate people who type really loud? I know for a fact that my dog does, because she grumbles like crazy as I type away while she tries to sleep.  Too bad I don’t have a ‘Quiet Keyboard Cover’!

Introducing the ‘Quiet Keyboard Cover,’ another ridiculous gadget from Japanese gadget-maker Thanko, the same minds behind the waterproof spy watch, and the USB-powered necktie cooler (bangs head repeatedly on desk).

This out-of-this-world contraption protects your keyboard from dust and crumbs, while also covering your hands to minimize noise. Apparently, keyboard noise is a huge problem in Japan, as is “the sound of pee dripping on toilet water,” noted the folks at Gadget. The latter was dealt with via the introduction of musical toilets.
