Industrial revolution By: Aynsley and Paesha

How one of the first typewriters looked.

The concept of the typewriter was to invent a machine that would help us type, and print papers faster. Once you pushed a key with the letter on it, the typewriter would print that letter on a piece of paper. This invention majorly helped people with bad handwriting, but it wasn't just them that it helped. It also helped people like authors and journalists get there stories and articles done faster.

Reasons why the typewriter is better then technologies today...

  • There are no annoying cords when using a typewriter.
  • When using a typewriter you don't need to download or install things.
  • The typewriter prints things as you type it, so you don't need to wait so long.
  • The typewriter is still a confusing machine, but there aren't as many small and confusing parts you need to six it.
  • You don't need to know how to code confuse things.
  • There are no passwords you need to remember.
If your an Author, Journalist, Buissness owner, or just somebody who has very bad handwriting come get a typewriter!

The typewriter was like the starter gun that started us off on this race that our world has created. Without this first idea of a computer type invention who knows if we would have ever thought about creating Computers, Laptops, and all the other electronics. A lot of these inventions were based off some type of keyboard. Weather it was digital or not. Christopher Sholes started us off with the typewriter, and he continued the race by inventing the first keyboard too.

Do you see Qwerty?

Fun facts about the man who started it all...

  • Christopher Sholes was born on Valentine's Day in 1819 (also known as February 14th 1819)
  • If you look on any keyboard or typewriter all the letters to spell typewriter will be in the top row.
  • If you look on any keyboard or typewriter you will find the word Qwerty on the top row. This is the name of the first official keyboard. The Qwerty Keyboard.
  • Models of the typewriter changed. They weren't all the same. Each one was built from hand and changed slightly. Every time Christopher made slight modifications to the machine.
  • Christopher Sholes died on February 17th 1890 at the age of 71.
