Sometimes you just need to feel the weight of the keys and the snap of a typewriter in order to really channel your inner Hemingway or Murrow, but with all of the touch keys and styluses of today it's becoming increasingly more difficult to do so. Enter Austin Yang's iTyperwriter, which joins together the technology of today with the aesthetic of yesteryear, creating a sleek, yet retro hybrid gadget. While some may find the sound (and even the idea) of a keypad hitting your prized iPad screen, the experience is one that could bring more old-school writers into Apple's world or give today's writers an idea of what its like to hear the clickiddy-clack of a typewriter. As of now, you can't buy the iTypewriter, but you can see it in action (albeit slow) in the video after the jump.
