Austin Yang has created this amusing device called the iTypewriter. Now, you've seen old-school typewriters wired to work with an iPad before, but Austin's take is completely original. As you type, pressing the key will cause a little raised arm -- the typebar -- to hit the corresponding key on the screen, providing that much needed haptic feedback with original good-looks.

TIt is a typewriter for the ipad. Users can enjoy the old feelingof typing and also the lastest technology. Even though the elder users who have never used the computer or ipad, they can use this familiar typewriter and type in the familiar operation way. For some specific group of users, this product provide an easier way to type on the ipad. 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, this product can reflect a strong haptic feedback. User can experience the physical strength transfer from the keypad and the movement of each key.
