In case you were wondering what’s happened to all the typewriters since computers have taken over the world, evidently some of them have gone into show business. Check out the Boston Typewriter Orchestra:

If that’s not enough, watch a full-on orchestral performance. Pretty nifty, huh? Well, I’m sure it beats hanging around Grandma’s dusty attic.



  1. Credit to these guys for an interesting idea, but I think the sound they make is horrible and they end up destroying lots of typewriters in the process. So overall, this gets the thumbs down from me.
