USB Typewriter for iPad

Here is an interesting innovation that repurposes an old device. As you can see in the video, a manual typewriter can be used as the keyboard for an iPad or any other device with a USB port. The design is distributed under a Creative Commons license so users can buy a kit and make one, or send the creator their own personal typewriters for customization.
