This is the patented 83-key wireless keyboard for smartphones, tablets, or computers that recreates the experience of typing on a vintage manual typewriter. With keys that require a firmer tap and make the familiar “clacking” sound, the keyboard lets you imagine you’re a best-selling author typing the great American novel as you craft pithy e-mails or engaging social media posts. More than a mere novelty, this functional work of art is crafted from scratch-resistant aluminum alloy and uses renowned Cherry key switches with electroplated typewriter inspired caps. The programmable carriage return serves as the enter key by default, while the left and right paper feed knobs control volume and vertical scroll. With a built-in stand that holds most smartphones and tablets. Connects to devices via Bluetooth or USB with included cable. A three-hour charge provides 1-2 weeks of normal use.
