Old School Style for Generation iPad
Anyone with literary aspirations these days can probably relate to the pang of envy I feel every now and then towards writers of the past (Ernest Hemingway, Hunter S Thompson, William Faulkner…) and the resoundingly satisfying mechanical clatter of their typewriters when compared to the hollow plastic clack of my modern keyboard.

The Qwerkywriter is an 84 key USB keyboard with an integrated tablet stand, and a detachable USB cable via mini-usb port.

The Kickstarter campaign for the Qwerkywriter was successfull and they’ve already started shipping the first units.
