With constant innovations in technology, some still crave the feel of old-school equipment and the USB Typewriter is a prime example. There are many camera's and keyboards that bridge the gap between analogue and digital. Although the functionality is up-to-date, the appearance is dated.

This typewriter works as a USB and connects to any Mac, PC and iPads. It works exactly like a regular keyboard with all the letters and special characters built in. The great thing about this piece is that it is beautifully designed, and makes for a great antique piece to have in your home.

By combining a visually appealing, old-fashioned design to a modern product, it opens up the market for those who are looking to purchase items that will serve a dual-purpose. Having a functional digital item and a statement piece rolled into one product, is definitely an appealing product for stylish homeowners. Stats for Antique Digitized Keyboards Trending: Older & Warm
