I spotted this while digging around on the internet, while it is NOT a cheap solution, it does look like it may be a fairly useful base for a project that requires such a keyboard.









The device works with anything Bluetooth-capable and includes a stand for tablets. Mechanical switches help it approximate a manual typewriter's infamous sound and need for strong fingers. At a smidgen under $350 USD, it is clearly being aimed at your average hipster type - so you may want to wait 6 - 12 months for them to move onto the next "shiny object Du jour", where you will be able to pick one up at a more reasonable price... 

Specs as follows:

$349.00 USD. Only US layout available. Shipping first week of June.

Qwerkywriter Features:
  • Bluetooth/Wireless Connectivity
  • Aluminum Construction
  • 83 Tactile "Clicky" Mechanical Switch
  • Built-in Tablet Stand (fits up to 5/8" thick tablets)
  • Typewriter Inspired Vintage Keycaps
  • Rechargeable Lithium Ion via provided micro USB cable
  • Up to 3 months of Battery Life
  • Return Bar defaults as ENTER and functions as a programmable key (up to 5 characters)
  • Dimensions: 13" x 7" x 2.5" approx. Weight is a little under 3 lbs.
  • Available in US version only

That does look rather nice, but alternatively you could put in an ebay bid in for this... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-36401663.
