If you’re into creative writing, professionally or not, this keyboard will brighten up your day. As a person who spends a lot of time typing at work and outside of it, the idea of a stylish mechanical keyboard with the allure of a typewriter like Lofree sounds great, right? #objectmagic
Lofree is a slim Bluetooth keyboard with circular keys that remind me of vintage typewriters. The best thing about it? It sounds like a typewriter, too! Every time you press a key, the loud, beautiful sound of old typewriters comes to life. That instant, you can believe that any blog post, piece of news or chapter of story you might write will one day become the first part of a novel. As opposed to old typewriters though, Lofree has a slim design and comes in modern pastels.
It’s equipped with four nubs on the bottom to keep it from sliding on your desk. You’ll notice two sliders on the side; one enables you to activate it through Bluetooth, the other helps you select the operating system it will work with, such as Android or iOS. The writing accessory can pair up with three devices simultaneously. To charge it, you have to use the charging cord attached, suited for Micro-USB.
During the day, in standby mode, it can serve for Instagram-worthy shots of your working space. Once the sun sets, the backlit keys will make your writing that much more fun and inspired, as they spread a soft light around your fingers.
If you think you can adjust quickly – from a laptop keyboard to one with concave keys – then start looking for it on Indiegogo. You can pre-order one on the crowdfunding site for $84.
