Mechanical Oldschool Typewriter Style Keyboard

March 6, 2017

This is the $130 Adesso AKB-636UB Desktop Mechanical Typewriter Keyboard. It's got the look of an oldschool typewriter, but with all the marvels of modern technology like spill-proofing, n-key rollover and Kaihl Blue mechanical switches. Unfortunately they don't make a bronze version to match the rest of your steampunk desk. Me? I don't have a steampunk desk. I don't even have a desk at all. I'm writing this from a hospital bed. "Are you okay -- what happened?!" Somebody was selling an old hospital bed on Craigslist.

Keep going for a handful of closeups.

Thanks to AlexAnder, who apparently has a capital letter right in the middle of his name. How prestigious!

    If it were wireless i would totally buy one!

    That is identical to the Azio MK-Retro-1 keyboard. The only difference is the Azio logo, and that the Azio one is $30 cheaper.

    Nah, if it doesn't have that big typewriter head that you slide back at the end of every line, I'm not interested. zzzzzzzzzzip ka-ching!!!

    I thought the same thing

    Why does it have to be $130 dollars? Sighs.

  • Bubbubsky

    Seriously. I want one, but not at that price point.
