New life for old typewriters

Got a typewriter in your collection marked for deaccessioning?  How about this for an idea.  A company in the US have come up with a DIY kit which hooks your old typewriter to a computer or iPad.  What a great experience this would be for our younger visitors and those of us who want to relive the ‘good ol days’!

  1. That is brilliant. I want one.

    I really want to see computer monitors that work like the old airport flip boards too. http://www.freefoto.com/images/25/11/25_11_8—Departure-Board–Munich_web.jpg

    • Interesting concept Mischa. I’ve never seen a flip board in a museum collection to date, I do hope there are some saved somewhere. There’s plenty of typewriters though!
