Qwerkywriter: A $350 Wireless Typewriter

Posted in Technology

The Qwerkywriter is an 84 key, USB, Bluetooth enabled, typewriter-inspired mechanical keyboard that simulates a tactile clicky feel of a vintage typewriter. It features custom typewriter-inspired keycaps, an integrated tablet stand, and a detachable USB cable via mini-USB port.

The Qwerkywriter does feature a built-in tablet stand, so long as your tablet of choice is 0.625 inches thick or less, as well as a lithium ion battery capable of giving the keyboard three months of battery life. Thankfully, the battery is rechargeable through a standard Micro USB cable, so there’s no need to hold onto a proprietary cable for dear life.

Qwerkywriter’s Return Bar functions as an ENTER key by default. But it’s also programmable, remembering up to 5 characters. Simply hold FN+Return Bar to record up to 5 characters. Patent-Pending keycaps features typewriter inspired keycaps. With its concave surface and touch-type support, it’s equally ergonomic and beautiful. Interestingly enough, the micro return key doubles as an enter key by default, though its functionality can be changed to render up to five characters, a feature that the writers among us will surely appreciate.
