The typewriter is a rare item that looks like an old-fashioned manual typewriter with a sheet of paper in it. This item occupies a space of one block and is found in the Furniture tab of the Inventory.
How to Obtain
Typewriters can only be obtained as loot from mechanical chests, or by trading with other players who have looted them.
Like most furniture, typewriters have no function beyond being decorative. The relative rarity of this item, however, means it also serves as a status symbol and carries a good trade value in the game economy.
Although technically listed as a mechanical item, the game currently (November 2013) places the typewriter in the Furniture section of the inventory.
