If Watson could type

I wants it.... behold the Steampunk Keyboard Mod. I love the sound it makes.

It looks exactly like the keyboard of the portable typewriter my dad had at college - a model from 1933 or so. Then again, I guess that was the point of the exercise. Given the trouble that he went to to recreate the thing, I hope he enjoys it.

I had a my father's old typewriter too, which had those same keys -- it was a Royal desktop job that was built before the War (World War 2, that is). I have since found another Royal almost like that, though it's a "portable" (how something that was made out of solid iron can be described as "portable" would probably boggle most of the iPod generation's minds).

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
