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 modification is very clean and leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter. You can use it as your primary computer keyboard, or turn off your monitor altogether and type on paper while saving your work to disk. You can also use it as a convenient keyboard dock for your iPad or other tablet. A beautiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.

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 special toggle keys.

The USB Typewriter works just like any USB Keyboard. There is no special software to install, and the necessary USB cable will be included with your order. It is not only compatible with all desktop and laptop computers, but also the iPad and many Android tablets. Consult my compatibility chart to see if this will work with your tablet:
