USB Typewriter blends old and new tech

We have so many fancy new toys in the world of electronics. But there are those of us that would like to go back to the old way of things…or at least pretend that we are. This new-fangled piece of machinery is a USB keyboard for a Mac, PC, or iPad. Obviously it looks a lot more awesome with an iPad as there is some awkwardness that would be prevalent with a PC or a Mac, but it’s still pretty awesome.

It has all the keys you need, and any keys that you can’t find are on a special toggle key. This really combines old and new in a fascinating way. As these kind of typewriters are hard to come by anymore, this mod runs about $849, but you also still have the chance to use paper if you’re tired of using a printer. If I had enough money to grab one of these, I would be using it to write this right now.
