iTypewriter


This is truly brilliant.  What do you do when you love the new technology, but long for that old school feeling of technology gone by?  Here at Digital Diner, we love our tablet computers, but sometimes we miss that tactile felling of an old manual typewriter.  Thankfully, a designer named Austin Yang has come up with a way to combine these two in an outstanding way.  The project is called iTypewriter.


You see you just slide your iPad into this device and then as you hit the keys on the keyboard, little mechanical fingers pop up to type on the screen for you.  It even has that thunk thunk sound of a mechanical typewriter.  All that it is missing is the bell at the end of the line and the manual carriage return.  Outstanding!
