A Modern-Day Typewriter
The personal computer may have revolutionized the way writers write, but distractions from the Internet and social media may not make it the ideal tool for writing. Designer Adam Leeb has created a hybrid typewriter called a Hemingwrite. Long battery life, instant on, and a mechanical keyboard help make Hemingwrite feel more like a typewriter or word processor, but with one key distinction—cloud connectivity backs up and syncs documents to services like Google Docs.
The device isn’t available for sale yet, but is currently a semifinalist in Engadget’s Insert Coin contest. Until then, get your typewriter fix with our own iPad app, Typing Writer.
