The typewriter is a precursor to the keyboard that you probably use every single day now, and time has not been kind to the former. Nice to know that an enterprising person decided to take the typewriter and hack it to function as a keyboard when plugged into a USB port on your computer or notebook, although you can be sure that typing on this puppy won’t be all that smooth as a regular keyboard, working out those muscles on your fingers and thumbs a whole lot more due to the amount of extra strength required to strike each key. It will cost around $500 tops to bring one of these hand-made puppies home. Definitely not library material, this.
