The informational chaos that we are exposed daily can make us prey to distractions or, in some kind of multitasking mind that in fact, few people can get without ending the day with the frazzled mind. Under this constant bombardment we have social networks, mobile notifications and computer, in addition to the ongoing talks in courier services, so sometimes our focus is crippled in this connected universe.
Of course, this does not affect everyone, much depends on the activities of each person, but it is a reality that some need silence and zero distractions to create things. Thus freeWrite, a project arises born in 2014 through Kickstarter, which offers us an interesting update to the typewriter that we all know, but with elements that adapt to this connected world.
FreeWrite: the “smart” typewriter
FreeWrite is a typewriter that offers the benefits of a word processor, but without the usual distractions we have in the computer, plus we can use it anywhere, thus bringing that old romanticism that was to write in remote places without electricity and WiFi connection.
Among its features, we find a 5.5 inch electronic ink screen with a resolution of 300 dots per inch, a rechargeable battery that offers a range of up to four weeks, weighing just 1.8 kilograms, storage for more a million pages, this according to its creators, as well as WiFi connection that will help us synchronize our work with compatible services like Google Drive, Evernote and Dropbox.
Its design is aluminum and part of its magic is in the full-size mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches. On the screen we can choose typeface and configure cloud services, and other issues to help us personalize the experience.
Of course freeWrite is focused on those seeking write anywhere without any distraction, it is available in several colors and priced at $499 for a limited time deliveries are scheduled for March to anywhere in the world.
