Make Your Computer Sound Like a Typewriter

Do you miss the magical and musical clack of typewriter keys? Now you can make your laptop or desktop computer clang like a typewriter with a free app.

Artist and designer Theo Watson has created the tool as part of a FAT Lab speed project. Unfortunately, the software is only available for Mac users right now.

Check it out: Noisy Typer is a free piece of software which plays typewriter sounds as you type. It runs in the background and works with all applications ( email, web, word etc ). Key sounds include: letter keys, spacebar, backspace, carriage return and scroll up and down. The software is open source and made with openFrameworks version 0071. You can download the source code here: NoisyTyperProject.zip.”
