The last company manufacturing manual typewriters has finally shut its doors!
It was based in Mumbai, India, and in the 1990s “the company was selling 50,000 models each year,” reports this technology site, but “That had dropped to around 10,000 by the mid-2000s, and last year the company sold less than 1,000 typewriters. According to the company’s general manager Milind Dukle the only people now buying manual typewriters are ‘the defense agencies, courts and government offices.'”
“With manual typewriters no longer being produced, I think it’s fair to say we’re now a world where computers rule supreme.”
