Make Your Own USB Typewriter For Fun And Profit

Wanna get some good lulz around the office? Convert your parent’s old typewriter into a USB keyboard. That and the ol’ stapler in a Jell-O mold prank.

But it really doesn’t look that hard as long as you’re the slow and steady type. The instructables guide takes you through step by step and the results speak for themselves. Really, the hardest part might be acquiring the old typewriter. [instructables via hack-a-day]
