We often stow our mobile phones or wallets in the pockets of our jeans. Davina Reichman and Luke Staley, a pair of Australian designers have leveraged on this idea and created new clothes with pockets large enough to fit an iPad! Convenient as it seems, we cannot fathom how it would feel like to carry an iPad around in this manner.

The iPad typewriter is another hybrid (Check out our previous sharing on ‘Hybrid Meetings’) integrating both old and new technology. The first typewriters have existed since the 1800s, being one of the earliest technologies that allow imprinting of words on paper. This technology has since developed over the years into modern computers that are widely used today. Following that, Steve Jobs created the iPad, a tablet that also can serves this function among others.
Jack Zylkin, the inventor of interest here, discovered an old typewriter on the side of a road. This led to his invention of the iPad Typewriter, which he also calls the ‘USB Typewriter’.
Here’s his website if you want to find out more about his invention and its purpose.
This spectacular creation has again exemplified how the iPad has replaced the role of paper, thus reinforcing the idea of “Going paperless with technology”.
