Longing for the nostalgic clickity clack sound of typing keys on a typewriter? The concept of the iTypewriter accessory by industrial designer Austin Yang, tries to mix the clunkiness and noise of a retro-style typewriter with the new technology and sleek design of Apple’s iPad tablet.
The designer explains the concept for the iTypewriter prototype in his own words:
“It is a typewriter for the ipad. Users can enjoy the old feeling of typing and also the lastest technology…People could be able to recollect old experience and memory by familiar appearance and haptic feedback. Instead of stroking on the screen with no feedback…User can experience the physical strength transfer from the keypad and the movement of each key.”
