Every so often a little piece of tech pops up and and makes you go: ‘Oooh I need that in my life‘.
I had such an ‘Oooh‘ moment the other day when I came across the Lofree keyboard.
Now it’s not often I get excited about a computer keyboard, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever been excited about one before. However, this keyboard is a little different, let me explain…
The keyboard is, and I quote:
‘Inspired by traditional typewriters, we engineered round keycaps to give lofree a classic, yet contemporary feel. It’s a delight for both eyes and ears. Lofree is the only mechanical keyboard which comes with your familiar Apple Magic keyboard layout. The compact lofree keyboard is packed with awesome specs. Mechanical keyboards shouldn’t be boring and clicky. We designed Lofree with simple, bright colors in mind to brighten up your mood’.
The round keys certainly give it a nice retro look. But unlike a typewriter (even my portable), it is compact and light enough to carry around with you.
It works wired or wireless and is compatible with Windows, Mac, Android and iOS, and can be paired simultaneously with up to three devices. The keyboard has three backlight settings, and will be available in a number of different colors. There’s no news as yet regards pricing and availability, but if you want to know more, you can sign up here to receive more details as soon as they become available.
Would one of these make me more productive? Probably not, though it may well make writing more fun and definitely a lot more colorful.
