What is it? Gaze upon it and gasp. This Blue­tooth-en­abled key­board for com­put­ers and mo­bile de­vices is based on a vin­tage type­writer, right down to the click­ety-clack feel of the keys as you tip­pity-tap (we’ll stop now). It has 84 keys, is com­pat­i­ble with both Macs and PCs and has a tablet stand that’s ideal for your iPad. The one you see here is a pro­to­type, so ex­act specs and ap­pear­ance are sub­ject to change. When’s it due? Au­gust 2015. Why are we ex­cited? Its steam­punk aes­thet­ics give Qw­erky­writer a real old­school ap­peal; it looks like some­thing you’d find in BioShock. Is it comfy to type on? We’ve no idea, but it’s here be­cause, well, it’s just beau­ti­ful, isn’t it?
