A keyboard disguised as a typewriter! A THX retro-microphone! A laptop cover mimics an old book! More!
But some people prefer their next new thing to look like an old thing. So what’s the appeal of the latest electronics wrapped in a retro design, like full-size jukeboxes that are really $4,000 iPod docks and manual typewriters reconfigured to work as U.S.B. keyboards? Has anyone ever said, “It’s a nice Ferrari, but it would be cooler if it looked like a covered wagon?”
What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
