USB Typewriter for the iPad [Video]

by on June 16th, 2010

Typing on the iPad is fairly simple if you are writing a few sentences. However, any more than that you will get irritated and require the help of a Bluetooth keyboard. Want to have some real fun on your iPad and kick it old school? How old are we talking about? How about a USB Typewriter for your iPad?

The USBTypewriterâ„¢ is a new and groundbreaking innovation in the field of obsolescence. Lovers of the look, feel, and quality of old fashioned manual typewriters can now use them as keyboards for any USB-capable computer, such as a PC, Mac, or even iPad! The modification is easy to install, it involves no messy wiring, and does not change the outward appearance of the typewriter (except for the usb adapter itself, which is mounted in the rear of the machine). So the end result is a retro-style USB keyboard that not only looks great, but feels great to use.

I have to admit, using a typewriter certainly was a thing of the past. It’s amazing how technology has changed our lives forever. With the USBTypewriter, you can re-live all of those memories. Check out the following video:

There are a variety of DIY kits to make the conversion, but as of now the creator has been flooded with requests after getting on to Gizmodo/Engadget. Definitely a neat way to bring back the good ‘ol days! Or, you can same some money and use the Camera Connection Kit with a boring USB keyboard!
