It wouldn't be a computer hacking scene in the movies or TV if the hacker wasn't furiously typing lines of code in a command-line interface. Swordfish and The Matrix: Revolution are two examples of fast-type movie hacking. That's why Hacker Typer is awesome. No matter what you type, it will show realistic-looking lines of programming language flooding across your screen. Spend some time pounding away on your keyboard while yelling "I've accessed the mainframe" and "I'm almost in," and impress your family, friends, and co-workers with your mad l33t skills.

What do you think of Hacker Typer? What else have you noticed about movie hackers? Sound off in the comments.

In movies and TV in general people type much faster than most ordinary humans. You know they're just hitting random keys and not actually doing anything. I suppose it's always been that way just that computers replaced typewriters.

Sometimes I wonder what hacking is realistically like. I suppose only hackers know... :)

Think the movie Sneakers was too long ago to use that.
I know several people who type over a hundred words a minute and their fingers are a blur. Me - not so fast. I'm more of the hunt and peck typist.

I imagine it's much slower in real life. Everything looks better and more glamorous in the movies.
