Typecasting the iPad Got a tablet and an old typewriter? You can play Dr. Frankenstein, the ultimate steampunk practitioner, and breathe new life into each. Jack Zylkin's USB Typewriter Easy-Install Conversion Kit lets you transform an old mechanical typewriter into a stand and keyboard for your iPad or Android tablet; it'll also work as the keyboard for a Mac, Windows or Linux PC.

The $79 kit's sensors, circuit board and switches come customized for your particular typewriter -- from Corona to Underwood -- and the conversion takes about two hours to complete. The typewriter still works with paper, but you will have to use the carriage return at the end of each line.
