Qwerkywriter, the Cool Retro Keyboard Flashback…

The latest stunningly cool idea to emerge from Kickstarter.com is a humble USB keyboard, the Qwerkywriter a keyboard with old world charm. With 1 day to go till funding and having already met their goal the future looks bright for this stylized typer.

The Qwerky is a beautiful blending of old and new, the vintage round key caps give the keyboard a vintage typewriter look while the latest mechanical switches provide a modern feel, the new. Hooking the digital typewriter up to computers and tablets will eventually be via Bluetooth but at the moment the first models are USB. The built in tablet stand and return bar round off the retro look.

Qwerkytoys hope to have the finished product available July 2015, with the keyboard costing $289. Check out the Kickstarter link below for more information.
