Ever evolving technology is hard to keep up with, and many say gadgets have lost some of the appeal and character of finely crafted devices. The following are 2 designs that bring back some oldschool charm to updated devices.
The micro-projector uses actual wheels of 35mm film and each Instagram slide can hold 9 photographs.
Users can create their own film slides online and once placed in the Projecteo the images can be projected onto a surface for a personalized slideshow.
Successfully funded on Kickstarter, the Projecteo seems perfect for Instagram lovers and anyone who wants to uniquely share their pictures.
The typewriter, once beloved by many, has found a way to be born again.
From Jack Zylkin at USB Typewriter, his update of the classic offers a way to reuse the once functional keys as modern day keyboards.
They work just like original typewriters, but don’t require paper. Resting where the wheel bed used to reside is a docking station for an iPad. Converted into a USB keyboard, users can type on their device’s screen via the typewriter.
Most vintage manual typewriters can be set up to work as a keyboard dock for iPads or adapted to work with Macs or PCs.
To try a DIY project, Zylkin offers 2 different tutorials.
Hacks, mods and new design projects centered around bringing once appreciated technology back around again not only reuses, but also recycles a bit of nostalgia.
