Bring The Clackety Clack To Your Desktop With The USB Typewriter Keyboard

If you're tired of how calm and quiet your office has become, bring a taste of the good old days to work with the USB typewriter keyboard.

Full of noisy key clacking and an undeniable charm, this stylish computer accessory is sure to get your co-workers talking about you, even if what they're saying is "shut that thing up!"

It might seem silly, but I like the idea of having that typewriter key feel beneath my fingertips, without having to use all that whiteout and transfer paper to clean up my documents, and I really like that they offer a DIY kit for the crafty consumer.

Hmmm........I've got an Underwood Portable lying around. Since there seems to be no actual destruction or permanent modification to the typewriter itself I might just do this. Can't use the typewriter right now anyway since the carriage return is broken, probably missing a tiny part that's supposed to mechanically stop and resend it back.

With the right case mod for the tower, monitor, and speakers, this would be an awesome retro office set-up.

Build the computer into a vintage Art-Deco desk and hide the speakers in cases that look like either period speakers or a radio and intercom. Not sure how to do the monitor, though.
