Last week, Tom Hanks launched a fun little throwback app called Hanx Writer. It simulates the rhythm and sound of writing with a real typewriter while using the touch screen of your iPad. It reminded me of how people are starting to long for the days of analog technology, like manual typewriters, cassette tapes, and rotary phones (my nephew has one, he love it).
This week’s project uses one of those old analog typewriters as a fancy display for your iPad. The interesting juxtaposition of modern and outdated technology make for an interesting talking piece when friends and family visit.
