Frankie loves Gadgets (and so do I)

So I’m supposed to be sorting through receipts for my tax, but that quickly got boring so I thought I would do a quick post about something I read about in the latest Frankie magazine this morning.

Here’s a way you can recycle (or is it up-cycle?) an old school clunky and chunky typewriter and use the keyboard for your computer, laptop or even your iPad.  It’s called USB Typewriter and basically it’s a gadget that connects old-fashioned manual typewriters to modern-day tech.  It’s available as a DIY kit or you can buy them ready-made if you’re not too savvy with that sort of thing. Click here for a short video on how it works.

By the way, Frankie magazine is my new love, its writers are clever, switched-on, cheeky and very quirky. The latest issue is jam-packed with funny and interesting stories about people and things from Australia and around the world.

Make sure you check out page 119 for a trip through good-old fashioned made-for-tv costume dramas. From Brideshead Revisited through to Downton Abbey, writer Jo Walker nails her reviews beautifully, I laughed my ass off!

  1. I’ve had that iPad Typewriter in my files for awhile — and I don’t even have an iPad! Such a clever combo of old and new.

    Speaking of technology, I do not seem to be getting your new post updates in my blogroll. Do I need to re-subscribe or change the url?
