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.
