Friday’s Fabulous Find: USB Typewriter.
"Think back, do you remember the last time you used a typewriter? Do you recall the resonant click clack of the keys as you plugged in every letter, eventually forming words, sentences, paragraphs, even whole manuscripts? What about the delight you felt sliding the carriage back into place with a zip and ring whenever it was time to start a new line of copy? Even a tech fanatic can admit that there was something uniquely exciting about using a typewriter that you just can’t replicate typing into a smartphone, an iPad or a computer. The thrill of using a typewriter may be passing from memory, but Jack Zylkin’s groundbreaking innovation brings this mechanical marvel out of retirement and offers a nod to its influence on the development of modern automation. For ardent admirers of the look, feel, and robust quality of an old-fashioned manual typewriter, the USB TypewriterTM allows you to use this once obsolete tool as a keyboard that plugs into any USB-capable device, such as your PC, Mac, or even your iPad! Plus, this new-and-improved gadget features all the advanced functions of a modern keyboard, such as ctrl, alt, esc, and arrow keys, so your typewriter is ready to keep up with your twenty-first century demands. Made in Philadelphia.Due to the reclaimed nature of this product, each typewriter will vary slightly.”

Hi! I'm Brooke. Indianapolis is my home & I welcome you to my little nook. I'm a twenty-something girl who was born in the land of corn (Okl.), attended undergrad in the true Sea of Red (Neb.), & eventually found her way back home again after picking up a couple letters behind her name (Kan.) while clinging to an adorable Maltipoo named Bentley. Thank you for stopping by & please feel free to leave a comment (or ask a question) under the "Be Kind" tab at the top... xo, B
