Old Technology Meets New / Typewriter Meets iPad…. Say What?
Today I had a presentation introducing the new website that I am working on for a Healthcare services organization. The presentation went well primarily due to the input by one of my new favorite people, Ann. She knows that I am a bit of a techie, so she mentioned an invention created Jack Zylkin, who is her daughters boyfriend. As a person that is so involved with technology and also has an ongoing and serious love affair with tech gadgets, I must say I was intrigued with the USB typewriter.
Say What? Yup, Typewriter meets USB meets iPad! What’s so awesome about this is that it provides the opportunity to repurpose the old back in the day typewriters but with a new technology spin. As a person that remembers the typewriter days I just felt a need to find out more about this super cool invention. The techie hipster in me just had to find out more!
This kind of repurposed technology may not appeal to a huge mainstream “camp out in the elements for 5 days for the next techie gadget” demographic BUT I see it as a really cool techie piece that is extremely unique and quite frankly very cool. Additionally it offers a bit of nostalgia to those that actually remember old school typewriters. Ultimately super cool and I would definitely LOVE to grab one of these for me or as a holiday gift. What do you think?
Take a look at the video below
