If you were wondering whether or not post-apocalyptic society will be integrating text messaging with self-defense, the answer is yes. Thomas Willeford's steampunk keyboard-arm guard combo sports futuristic Victorian aesthetics and craftsmanship, full typepad functionality, and comprehensive forearm protection from swords, clubs, and flyaway styluses.

Antiqued buttons power a 3-in-1 multimedia wireless keyboard (typepad, touch pad, laser pointer) that can control devices up to 100 feet away. Also included are a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and mini 2.4 GHz USB wireless receiver, the latter of which stores inside the keyboard when not in use. I'm not sure how much this contraption weighs altogether, but my guess is somewhere around 97 pounds.
