Austin Yang, an industrial designer current living in Edinburgh, Scotland, has created a working iPad typewriter keyboard that uses a hammer with a capacitive touch bumper to touch the iPad's on-screen keyboard.
Oddly, the physical keyboard doesn't map properly to the QWERTY keyboard on the iPad, most likely because of the mechanics of the typewriter that Yang has created. This is the likely reason for the very slow typing speed in the video below.

What pathetic nonsense. Does this guy have to run everything he does by you, assuming you're not too busy being so highly productive for the benefit of mankind.
I think it's novel, at the very least. It would be better if it had a qwerty keyboard.
When you make something half as cool in your spare time, let me know.
