Note: These typewriters are very rare, and I only get one in every so often. The gold leaf Underwood that I have in stock right now is slightly different from the one shown here -- it does not have the two gold leaf panels above the keyboard. It only has gold leaf on either side, and in the gold decals.
This gorgeous Underwood Standard Portable typewriter, with a unique gold-leaf finish, has been lovingly restored and then modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, or even iPad! That's right -- it works as a fully functional computer keyboard!
The modification is very clean, and leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter. You can use it as your primary computer keyboard, or turn off your monitor altogether and type on paper while saving your work to disk. You can also use it as a convenient keyboard dock for your iPad or other tablet. A beautiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.
The USB Typewriter can type all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks that a standard USB keyboard can. It also includes Shift, Space, and Return (which is literally activated by the typewriter's return carriage!). Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, esc, ctrl, and so on are available with a special toggle key. Additionally, the USB Typewriter can easily be configured to type in any number of languages.
If this item is not your style, you can customize your own typewriter with our DIY Conversion Kit, starting at $54!
