Item Description:
This antique typewriter has been modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, or even iPad! That's right -- its a beautiful and fully functional computer keyboard!

The USB Typewriter can type all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. It also includes shift, space, and return carriage (which is literally activated by the typewriter's return carriage!). Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, esc, ctrl, and so on 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.

NOTE: If you plan on using this device with an iPad, please let me know. It requires a special adapter, which is not included, but which you can buy from the Apple Store.
