Corona-Matic Typewriter Waffle Iron

Maybe it’s good old movies that keep reminding us of typewriters, or nostalgia has become an indestructible part of our lives… Isn’t it queer that long-forgotten typewriters should resurface after all those years? Although this time no-one will ask you to type out a document – probably hurting your fingertips in the process.

Corona-Matic

This new gadget isn’t actually a typewriter, it’s a waffle iron created by designer Chris Dimino. And though it is called Corona-Matic, which for older folks sounds as a clear-cut reference to typewriters, the younger generation will surely be associating the waffles it makes with a keyboard, and not with typing out a document, but with playing a computer game.
