I’ve been dying for a typewriter computer keyboard ever since I saw Blade Runner. I suspect I’m not the only one. Anyone up for indulging our geeky lust by churning these muhs out (in a slightly less awkward form, of course) in bulk?

I suppose you could just buy a cheap old typewriter off of ebay, wire it up and then sell it on there again, but I doubt something like this would have a bulk appeal.
