Qwerkywriter - Typewriter Inspired Mechanical Keyboard
If you’ve ever written on a typewriter, you know that no modern keyboard can compare. There is something about the sound, the feel, the tactile nature of a vintage typewriter that makes writing a pure joy. Traditional mechanical keywords have done a decent job of bringing some of this back to the digital age, but they still are missing something. The Qwerkywriter aims to fill this gap in the market. Launched on Kickstarter in 2014, it is a mechanical keyboard that is 100% inspired from the classic typewriter. Made of a chassis body constructed entirely from scratch-resistant aluminum alloy, this is a sturdy and durable writing instrument. Its aesthetics are beautiful and the tactile nature of the keys - produced by Cherry MX switches - brings the feel of the typewriter into your home. Qwerkywriter is the perfect balance of modern and retro.
Oddball Drum Machine
We all know about the simple office pastime of bouncing tennis balls off the wall. Much to the chagrin of our coworkers, you can now use the Oddball to make unique drum beats and loops by doing just that. This fun little device is currently funding on Kickstarter and is down-sized drum machine thats been encased in a bouncy ball that you can throw, drop and bounce to activate. The Oddball acts as the percussion trigger and the internal sensors can translate the noises via Bluetooth to the Oddball mobile app. Intensity is control by the force of the bounces and for the more advanced audio mixers the drum machine can act as a MIDI controller used in apps like Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic Pro and Garageband. The ball charges over USB and ships with the companies own app that is preloaded with multiple effects and audio tools.
