The End of Manual Typewriters

Godrej and Boyce, the India-based manufacturer of new typewriters has officially stopped production. Once they sell through their stock it will become effectively impossible to buy a brand new manual typewriter.

Swintec in the United States still makes typewriters--however they do not seem to carry a fully manual model. Interestingly Swintec makes a see through typewriter for use by prison inmates (I assume so thet cannot steal parts of hide things in it without being detected?)
