I’ve been thinking about one thing: I really do like to have a clicky noise when I push some buttons on a keyboard. Kinesis Advantage has a built-in peeper/speaker inside, and I think it is one of its nicest features.
So, I have some options for getting clicky sounds:
(1) Build a speaker into Keyboardio. Has anyone done this already?
(2) Wait for Clicky keys variation to return. Disadvantage is that clickyness cannot be disabled for office.
(3) Build a device that takes keyboard signals in, outputs the same keyboard signal unchanged, and additionally makes noises when detects keyboard clicks with its speaker.
(4) Use Bucklespring: https://github.com/zevv/bucklespring. Tried that, I have to customize it to produce only mono sound as stereo is awful when using headphones, and change the output sound to something nicer than bucklespring sound. I would have to try more to see if the response latency is small enough for me to notice.
(5) Build a device that takes the keyboard in, similar to (3), and addional input of computer speaker output. The device would multiplex the computer speaker output and its generated click sounds to the final output. So, It would be same as option (4) but done in hardware.
Anyone have any thoughts? Are there any devices doing these things already available?
