Qwerkywriter Mechanical Keyboard

Maybe it’s just us, but we’re of the opinion that writing on a vintage typewriter is far more pleasurable than clicking away all too silently on a modern keyboard. The only problem is that as they’re paper-only, you’ll be stuck retyping it all anyway to make it digital. Qwerkywriter skips that step by integrating mechanical functionality with modern compatibility. This 84-key typewriter-inspired mechanical keyboard simulates the tactile feel of vintage typewriters and plugs to your computer or tablet via USB (and potentially Bluetooth if their stretch goal is attained). It’s also compact, sports an integrated stand for fitting tablets up to 5/8-inches thick, and is far more inspirational, aesthetic-wise, than even the sleekest contemporary keyboards.
