"FACTORY SECOND DISCOUNT": This typewriter is in beautiful condition, except for one flaw: the question mark key does not print onto the paper (but it will still appear correctly on your computer screen or iPad.) If you only plan on using the typewriter as a computer keyboard or iPad dock, and not as a typewriter, this flaw will not matter to you. Even so, because of this flaw, I have reduced the price by $300.

This antique Royal Model O typewriter from the 1930s 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 -- and yes, it still writes beautifully on paper. Enjoy the simplicity and satisfaction of typing directly to paper, while surreptitiously recording your keystrokes to a computer. Or, use this classic typewriter as your main computer keyboard. 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, ALT, CMD, and so on) are made available by special toggle keys.

This USB Typewriter works with many different languages (you can re-configure the keyboard to produce special characters for German, Swedish, French, and many others).

The USB Typewriter will work on any computer or laptop, and it makes a great "keyboard dock" for your iPad or Android tablet. For a full list of compatible tablets and smartphones, visit: http://www.usbtypewriter.com/tablets
