Today you will learn about a gadget for writers and journalists called Freewrite Traveler. This modern typewriter is equipped with a 6-inch display with electronic ink, has the ability to synchronize with cloud storages and equip a full-size mechanical keyboard.
About the project
A few years ago, the company Astrohaus released its first gadget for writers and journalists called The Freewrite, the money for the production of which was collected through Kickstarter. This device was quite weighty and equipped with a six-inch screen and a mechanical keyboard, as well as skillfully connect to the network via Wi-Fi to save backup copies of files.
Astrohaus recently launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding platform with a new, more compact and light version of a typewriter called Freewrite Traveler.
The principles of its work remained unchanged. The gadget received the same six-inch display with electronic ink, also has the ability to synchronize with cloud storage and is equipped with a full-sized mechanical keyboard.
To reduce the weight of the machine (from 2 kg to 800 g), the keys in Freewrite Traveler were replaced with thinner ones.
Unlike the first model, Freewrite Traveler can be folded like a laptop and put into a bag, so the novelty will certainly be appreciated by writers and journalists who often work on the road.
The functionality of a typewriter is limited so that the user is not distracted by social networks, messengers, or history in the browser. At the same time, Freewrite Traveler has support for Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote and a special service from Astrohaus called Postbox.
Owners of the previous version will also be able to synchronize documents between two devices.
Freewrite Traveler allows you to scroll through the text and edit only the parts with errors, but the device still does not have a copy and paste function.
The gadget is charged through the USB-C port and is able to work from one charge up to 30 hours. In addition, through a USB machine, you can connect to a regular computer and copy the typed text.
Before the end of the campaign on Indiegogo, the Freewrite Traveler typewriter can be ordered for $ 329. Expected delivery time – June 2019.
