Any of you who have been to my home know that this is exactly what my desk looks like.
Presumably you are also wearing a burnt-orange knit top.
Hush your mouth! That's not knit - that's most likely crochet but could be that ultimate style statement of the decade - the macramé vest! :-)
How fitting: just an hour ago, I found myself re-reading The Gernsback Continuum. Clearly it's leaking through again.
Oh. My. God. This... this is awesome. How have I not heard of this before?
My first thought: "Hey! That's not a split keyboard!"
Really? My first though was, "Check out that sweet ergo keyboard!" Okay, maybe not split - but it's hard to tell from this angle. We just don't know! :D
Presumably, she is very comfortable in a lot of different positions.
That large chrome bar, top right. Can that please be the carriage return?
They should have added pedals for shift and carriage return.
I'm pretty sure that's a light.
The typehead mechanism looks very unfamiliar. Tradional typewriters move the "carriage" (the roller holding the paper) from right to left past a fixed-position typing mechanism. This one looks like it slides the typehead from left to right past a stationary piece of paper, the way dot-matrix printers used to.
Selectrics had a moving printhead. Retronaut says the photo is from 1970, so a selectric-style electric typewriter would still have been what a Spiffy Typewriter Of The Future looked like.
(Come to think of it, I used a daisy-wheel electric typewriter in the 80s, and it also moved the printhead and kept the platen still. It might just have been a common feature of electric typewriters.)
