Ah, there is nothing quite like bridging the generational gap in humans, even more so in electronics. What you see above is known as Wozniak’s Conundrum, paying t homage to the other Steve, where it takes on a steampunk design approach coupled with a really, really old keyboard. We’re talking about a fully functional Mac that will get its input kicks from a 114-year old Remington typewriter keyboard which hails all the way back from 1897.
As for the mouse? You will be privy to using a mouse that was constructed using parts from an old Morse Code telegraph key. Of course, the Mac itself isn’t exactly up to date, being a 1991 Mac model, coupled with Mac OS 7.5 and a 56K modem that was cobbled together from old phone parts and a floppy drive. Talk about a labor of love – this deserves all the kudos and praise even if you’re not an Apple fanboy.
