Typewriter console by TazioBettin Typewriter console by TazioBettin
I took a photo of an old typewriter and manipulated it trying to create a computer that looks at the same time futuristic and retro. I had great fun with this piece. So I thought I'd share it. It's for a group on google+ dedicated to science fiction and cyberpunk literature

Thank you. I am new to this so am finding my way! Normally I use commercial stock libraries for images but I want to give independent artists some exposure.

This could easily be used as a prop to "Blade Runner" or its supposed sequel in the works. Well done!

So it's true. They're really doing it. Oh well, I won't ruin the good memory I have with another crappy sequel/prequel/remake...

You could make your own there's a kit out there that uses an old typewriter to interface with a computer and you can still use it as a typewriter .
