Probably the oddest machine I ever saw with a typewriter on it was a
machine with a card reader and I think a model A connected to it and it
would type out what was punched into the cards. I was told there was a
companion machine that would punch cards with what you typed on the
typewriter. The flexowriter have a common ancestor to the IBM typebar
electrics, IBM sold what became flexowriter because of antitrust concerns.
