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. Use it as a computer keyboard, or as a typewriter with a digital memory, or as a sturdy iPad keyboard dock. A beatiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.

As featured on: Gizmodo, Boing Boing, WIRED, Engadget, CNET, Martha Stewart, Vanity Fair, the New York Times, and the Financial Times.
