The pitter-patter of typewriter keys can make even the most adamant techies a bit nostalgic. For lovers of Skype, the free online calling service that has even delivered its application to a mobile audience, we have run into Stype, the skyping typewriter.

Through a complex set of belts and pulleys connected to the Web via vintage mechanical typewriter, the Stype enables two-way text messaging. The user simply types their message onto paper and then waits while the response from someone else is magically typed back.

The whole experience looks rather ghost-like, watching each key press down, pounding the paper with no one else in sight, but the tactile satisfaction of a type-written message is certainly worth the fright.
