While technology quickly evolved beyond teletype terminals some decades ago, our modern technological world was built in many ways upon these machines, and with some relatively basic components, a teletype nearly a century old can be interfaced to a modern computer and the internet. This page aims to give as much detail on various available designs as possible to help the up and coming teletype operator achieve the great dream.

Your imagination is the limit when it comes to how you could apply the modern internet to technology 50 to 100 years old. However, some of the more common applications are sending/receiving SMS or email, printing RSS feeds, connecting to *nix systems via SSH, and printing RTTY/ITA2/ASCII art.
