Would you like to own a USB typewriter?

14 June 2010

Have you ever wanted a typewriter that is electronic? You might be thinking "Yes. It's called a computer. And you're an idiot. Where do I get a refund for reading this rubbish?" Well, someone thinks it's a good idea. That person is Jack Zylkin who has made one.

A DIY kit will retail at $75 and a pre-assembled one will set you back somewhere between $400 and $500. This entirely useless thing is compatible with PCs, Macs and iPads and will leave any user saying things like "Haha! Look! My modern gadget is like an old typewriter! See? *click-click-ding!* Wait! No! Come back! I'm very, very lonely!"

    If I put my nephew's iPad on top of my manual typewriter, would I: a) get a similar effect; b) get an Oscar, or c) get arrested (again). What do you think?
