Lots of iPad mini excitement and news swirling around right now, but amidst all this revolutionary new technology stuff, The Huffington Post takes us way back in time with the extraordinary-looking iTypewriter keyboard for the iPad. The iTypewriter is the invention of industrial designer Austin Yang from Edinburgh, and aims to integrate â€œthe old feeling of typing andâ€¦the latest technology,â€ with â€œstrong haptic feedbackâ€ when you use it. The Huffington Post isnâ€™t particularly impressed with the iTypewriter as an actual working keyboard, and you can see why from the video, as youâ€™ve got to figure that the screen is taking a pounding from the keys hitting it like that! Their readers also seem to be tied between thinking its â€œPretty stupidâ€ and â€œPretty awesome.â€ The Huffington Post says that Yang is no stranger to this sort of experiment, having also created the iTurntable, which is an iPod dock that looks like an old-fashioned record player.
