The Qwertywriter is a link between the old and new world

by

There’s a good chance you’ve heard of the word “steampunk” by this point. It’s a blending of Victorian aesthetics and mannerisms with modern or advanced technology. Really old-fashioned Sci-Fi if you will. While it keeps cropping up in music videos, television, and all over the Internet, it is truly a way of life for some. It has inspired a lot of amazing contraptions that are not only functional, but look beautiful to boot!

Brian Min, a game developer who has a passion for mechanical keyboards was inspired by typewriters of a bygone era, and decided to combine the two. He came up with the Qwertywriter. This is an 84-key USB keyboard that uses Cherry MX Blue switches underneath a vintage-themed key cap. There is a move-able return bar, but at the present it doesn’t have any functionality.  This is Bluetooth enabled, but you can plug it in via USB.

In addition to being a fashionable mechanical keyboard, this can also be a stand and keyboard for your tablet (so long as it isn’t thicker than 5/8”). This is available for pre-order for only $309. That may seem like a lot, but you’d be getting something that is not only functional, but made with aesthetics in mind. If it makes you feel any better, there are other similar works out there from creators such as the late Datamancer that go for $500 at the very least (the major difference being craftsmanship and artistic value). This would definitely be a conversation piece for any office space or home setup.

Available for pre-order at qwertywriter
