Lego vintage typewriter gets brand new keys

It almost looks like a museum piece, but this old-school typewriter is made of modern plastic. It’s built with Lego bricks and sports a nifty new set of keys.
It’s the handiwork of Matt Armstrong, a San Diego-based martial arts instructor who loves building stuff out of plastic bricks when he’s not teaching students how to defend themselves.
Armstrong, aka Monsterbrick on Flickr, had a friend refurbish the keys with an engraving machine, making the typewriter even more realistic.
Armstrong has been building his own unique Lego creations for more than 20 years. He recently showed off some of his works, including colorful takes on R2-D2, at the Star Wars Days event at Legoland California.
