USB Typewriter Turns iPad into Vintage Writing Contraption

The typewriter. The ultimate forerunner of the word processor. We don’t give the typewriter enough credit for changing the world of the press. Providing fanboys of the 1880s to create fan fiction which could be read by tens of readers, instead of just himself.

But since we’re in a new era. In fact, there’s probably been multiple new eras since the typewriter’s inception, we often forget just how far we’ve come. The USBTypewriter works with any computer and even turns your iPad into traditional typewriting device, complete with scrolling and dings. You can make your own for $75 with a DIY Kit or buy it pre-made for $350. The choice is yours. Hit the jump for a video demo.
