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!

This gorgeous Underwood Model F was manufactured in the 1930s in the USA. This same model was used by Jack Kerouac to write "On the Road." An iconic, timeless machine.

NOTE: THIS PRODUCT IS UNAVAILABLE UNTIL DECEMBER. USB Typewriter is moving to a new location, and we will be without a proper workspace for the month of November, unfortunately. Therefore we cannot take new orders until December. Please contact us directly if you have an urgent need.

The USB Typewriter can type all uppercase and lowercase letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, Esc, Ctrl, and so on are available with special toggle keys. By request, I can connect the Enter key to the typewriter's return carriage lever (the lever that moves to the next line on the paper), but by default it is accessed with a key on the far right side of the 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 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: www.usbtypewriter.com/tablets.html
