Really fun way to see and appreciate our older generation and turn something into a useful tool.  Inspire handmade! 
As a writer and someone who learned to type years and years ago on the typwriter in my school days, I would absolutely LOVE this!
The original typewriter will never be obsolete. The later generations who embrace the older technology will keep it alive indefinitely.

You wanna give the typewriter a chance at survival yet they cost like €1.200 ;(

Creative, but not practical.  Plus, where do you think we would be if we kept holding onto old, now non-useful, technology? Well, we wouldn't make very much progress. I think we should remember old technology, not integrate it into more efficient technology. Just a thought.
