Where old-fashioned leather accessories meet new world technology, the Typewriter Arm Guard combines the unique qualities of different time periods.

Decked out in harness straps, metal rivets and a molded leather base, this armband is a heavy duty piece of equipment that straps right onto your forearm. Surprisingly, this relic is actually fitted with a functional keyboard that is powered by a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a mini 2.4 GHz USB wireless receiver. That means that this isn't just a cool fashion accessory, it also works to send text messages on your cellphone, even if it is 100 feet away from you.

This Typewriter Arm Guard, created by Thomas Willeford of Brute Force Studios is a functional steampunk keyboard accessory. Stats for Steampunk Keyboard Cuffs Trending: Older & Average
