Tech Travels Back To The Fashionable Future

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.

From Instagram, the Projecteo is a kickback to the days of the oldschool projector.

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.

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.
