How to Turn Your iPad into a Typewriter

A couple weeks back AppNewser posted a cute demo video for a custom iPad accessory which would let you type on a mechanical typewriter and see your work be typed onto the screen. That device shown in the demo video wasn’t set to be released as an accessory you can buy, so as much fun as it was to watch it still came up short against today’s gadget.

I’ve just found a typewriter conversion kit on Etsy. This is going to require a lot of work on the part of the buyer as well as a typewriter, but once you’re done you should be able to connect a manual typewriter to your iPad, PC, or Mac.

AppNewser has covered similar conversions in the past, but thoose devices weren’t sold as a kit. Instead you bought an already converted typewriter, and it cost over $400.
