Typesonic turns an old typewriter into one crazy instrument

Who says typewriters are obsolete gadgets? Sure, you probably don't type on a typewriter anymore, instead preferring the modern conveniences of a computer, but that doesn't mean that a typewriter can't be repurposed into some completely awesome new device.

Just take a look at the Typesonic, a crazy instrument built out of an old typewriter. The keys all strike notes rather than placing letters on a piece of paper, and it creates a weird, otherworldly sound. Sure, it's not going to help you write letters to your family, but that's what email is for. It's only a matter of time before we start seeing Typesonics at concerts everywhere.
