Writers and Steampunks will Love The Qwerkywriter
Qwerkywriter Kickstarter Success
Typewriter Inspired Wireless Mechanical Keyboard
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. It was successfully funded via Kickstarter.
Qwerkywriter connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to Apple products, Android Tablet Devices, Windows Tablets and more. Industrial strength mechanical switches provide a unique clicky tactile feel creative writers love. Concave keycaps can even support touch type.
We think TurlBook® fans (especially the authors, editors and steampunks among you) will love it. If you have one – tell us about your experience using it.
Tactile qualities in tech are an interesting trend (one we’ll blog about in future). The Steampunk aesthetic is partly a discussion about the kind of technology we want to have; and it challenges the idea that high tech must be sleek and ‘disappear’. Humans need some physicality, and this is missing in our ‘space pod’ tech designs. We actually yearn for a bit of character and grit. With TurlBook®, the idea of the Magic Book is now real: books come alive with 360° cinematic illustrations, allowing you to step into the story, look around in the events. Reading is absolutely interactive, and absolutely creative. Enhance the reader’s own creativity and you can increase the benefit of reading. That’s huge. It’s also already more tactile, and why in the long term we’re committed to delivering physical eBooks with flexible paper displays.
