WOOW...iPad Meets Antique Typewriter

Is your iPad feeling a bit too modern for you?

Then attach a typewriter to it. An etsy member has hacked an antique typewriter to work as a USB keyboard for Macs, PCs and even iPads.

The typewriter’s keyboard includes all letters, numerals, punctuation marks, shift, space and a functional return carriage. Non-standard keys, such as function (eg. F1, F2), esc, ctrl are available with a special toggle key.

The modification is very clean leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter — and yes, it still writes beautifully on paper. A beatiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.

The USB typewriter doesn’t require special software and also works with a number of tablets, including the Toshiba Thrive, Motorola Xoom and HP TouchPad.
