USB Typewriter

The trick is finding the ‘escape’ key

I love my computer, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes the keyboard just lacks that “punch” that I remember from the olden days. When I was a kid my family didn’t have a computer, but they still thought it was important for me to learn how to type, so they got me an old typewriter from the local thrift store. A few months back I got a brand-new iMac and the keyboard that it came with is one of those super-flat, laptop style keyboards, where the keys only go down about an eighth of an inch when you press them. I have always thought that a typewriter that you could plug into your computer would be a cool thing to have, and now there is finally a kit that can turn almost any typewriter into your latest peripheral.
