I like to take a break from pontificating on occasion to share with you oddities that I don’t think anyone would have thought of, much less brought to market. Hence, I bring you the iTypewriter (courtesy of LaughingSquid) designed by Austin Yang. The device replicates the experience of typing on an old manual typewriter via your iPad. Just place your iPad in the accessory, and as you press the keys a mechanical arm swings up and taps the corresponding spot on the screen with a stylus-like arm.
I’ve seen a lot of keyboard accessories for the iPad, but nothing even remotely like this. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) the iTypewriter isn’t in production yet- it’s still just a concept.
