Texting From A Teletype? Yes Please

Mdziewie, a Pole with a fondness for old tech it seems, decided that he would rather text from a Teletype instead of a phone. Now, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking “Awesome! What is a teletype?” Well, as it turns out, a teletype is what the ancient romans used for electronic, peer-to-peer communications way back in the mid-20th century. The particular model Mdziewie is using was new in 1963. These telegraphing typerwriters haven’t been in wide use for decades, which makes Mdziewie’s schizo-tech texter all the cooler. The teletype can both receive and send text messages, what’s more, it does it in style. Portability schmortibility, I am all for devices with rhythmic clacking noises.

If you still want more, you can check out a video of it here, but heads up, the site is in Polish.
