You’ll likely be over the age of 35 if you have vivid memories of using a typewriter. I certainly do, and loved the sound of typing and seeing a page of paper fill with words. If you miss that experience really badly, then you may want to consider the USB Typewriter.
At US$699 for the one pictured, it’s not something to jump into lightly, but imagine the amount of conversations it’ll start. If you have a decent typewriter, then for US$49 you can buy a DIY kit. I like the US$499 Olympia Portable myself, but fitting it in my iPad case might be difficult.
