Keyboard docks and cases for tablets come in a variety of sizes and design. Some try to mimic laptop with low profile keys, while others go for a different look, kind of like the Qwerkywriter pictured above. The Qwerkywriter, in case it wasn’t obvious enough, is a keyboard dock designed for tablets in mind.

However as you can clearly see in the photo, it has been designed to mimic the keys and the look of an old school typewriter, so if you grew up around typewriters and wanted to relive some memories of the good old days, perhaps the Qwerkywriter might be of interest to you. The device is a Kickstarter project that has since managed to exceed its funding goal, so you can rest assured knowing that it will be made a reality.

Unfortunately for those who are interested, be prepared to fork out quite a bit of money for it as it is priced above $250. The keyboard is essentially a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches that will emulate the sound and feel of a typewriter, so if you wanted something a little more quiet, then you’ll have to look elsewhere.

The Qwerkywriter will also play nicely with a variety of tablets, not just iPads, and will also play nicely with computers, so if you wanted a keyboard for your computer, it will work just fine, and will also support Mac OS. Now it seems that building the keyboard and producing it could take a while as its creators have estimated that it will only begin shipping in August 2015, so if you can afford to wait, you can go ahead and pre-order it via its websiteqwerkywriter.
