Steampunk Computer

These are pictures of the Steampunk Computer I build. It's life started at the German Triumph plant back in 1937 as a "Standard 12 Typewriter" with a dutch key-set. It was badly rusted and left for dead at a junkshop in our village where I picked it up for 10 euro's in may of 2011. I took it apart and rebuild it to be a computer preserving most of its original looks.

Does the screen move to the left and DING while you type? Sorry I had to ask. 

That is really cool though.

Haha, no, that would have been possible to make but highly impractical :D

Oh. When I saw it I thought it was an actual type writer. Till I saw it was a computer you built. That was got to be the coolest computer I've ever seen. 

I love those keys on it too.

Thank you so much! Those keys are really nice to type on too, the other one I build has been a daily user ever since I finished it. :)

Correction, this one has been a daily user...
