    You know how people are fond of a certain pen? Like, I happen to have a preference for the Pilot Precise V5s, while my husband always buys the Pilot G-2 07.

    Well, when I asked him for gadget ideas for my collaboration with Home Gadget Geeks back in February, the first thing that popped into his mind was the topic for this episode. He’s a bit of a gamer and, like we have our preferences for pens, apparently, in the PC gaming world, there are enthusiasts who love finding just the right clickiness factor.

    In this episode, we’ll look at the progression from typewriters to computers and how this common link between them has evolved over time.

    I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Mechanical Keyboards.

    Listen to the episode of Home Gadget Geeks I was a guest on with Jim Collison for more information on Voice Recognition and Mechanical Keyboards!
