Build your own Lego working typewriter – CNET
Lego‘s upcoming construction set isn’t based on a show like the Friends’ apartment or on a real-life building like The Colosseum. It’s instead based on the real typewriter of company founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen.
The 2,079-block set comes out July 1 for $200 and, once built, works like an actual typewriter although without the ink. An internal carriage moves as the letters are struck, and it can even take a piece of paper in its rollers. A fabric red and black spool is a first for Lego and completes the vintage typewriter look.
