Back in 2014, an interesting device by the name of the Hemingwrite hit Kickstarter. This was basically a typewriter that was created for writers simply because unlike computers where you could surf the web, play games, and watch videos, this typewriter offered up distraction-free writing, something we’re sure many writers agree that they could do with.
The good news is that if you have been waiting since 2014 to get your hands on the device, you won’t have to wait much longer because the company has officially put the typewriter up for sale. It will be sold under a different name as the FreeWrite, but essentially it is more or less what we have seen when it first launched.
For those unfamiliar, the FreeWrite is not your average typewriter. For starters it will be electronic with a built-in mechanical keyboard, an E-ink screen so you can see what you’re typing, and internal storage that can apparently store over 1 million pages of text. It will also be able to connect to the internet where users can then sync their writing with Dropbox, Evernote, or Google Drive.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in getting, the device is currently being sold for $449. This is a 24-hour flash sale, after which the price will go up to $499 through March, and its final MSRP will be that of $549. It is expected to begin shipping out to customers next month.
