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!
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.
This Smith Corona Typewriter from the early 1960s is a subtle sea-foam green color. It also types like a dream.
