OriginEdit

This typewriter from the 1920s was made by the "Monkey" typewriter company. It is the suspected origin of the "Infinite Monkey" theorem. The theorem states that a monkey at a typewriter, hitting random keys and given an infinite amount of time, would almost surely type out a given text, the works of William Shakespeare being the most common given example.

EffectsEdit

When the title of a work and its author are typed onto a sheet of paper, the typewriter will begin to automatically type out the work in full. It seems to struggle with the works of Shakespeare and will hesitate for minutes at a time between words.
