Cell phones have that shutter click

2013-02-22 16:01:17.738962+00 by Dan Lyke 8 comments

Cell phones have that shutter click sound as a holdover from mechanical cameras. Can we have laser printers do the dot matrix bzzt bzzt bzzt?

I think Shadow wins all the Internets today.

Only if I can count the ticks and tell if this was an original Apple drive, or a Shugart SA400 with the patched copy of DOS to handle all 40 tracks...

I want my flash drive to make diskette noises.

The typewriter idea I like but I want it to work with my keyboard.

Oh! and I want a lever at the top right corner of the keyboard to replace the "Enter" key.

I wish I'd had that idea back when I still worked at LaserMaster, because that's something I could have easily convinced a half-dozen cow-orkers to have helped with. I think the hardest part would have been figuring out how to explain the need for a speaker on the processor board to manufacturing.

I would like an option for typewriter noises, please.
