Peak hipster? The Qwerkywriter

I’ve blogged before about the Freewrite, a too-expensive word processor. That seemed, at the time, to be a peak of a particular kind of fashion, removing functions from devices to recapture the mojo of olde worlde typewriters.

It’s now been surpassed by the Qwerkywriter, a mechanical, metal Bluetooth keyboard. Love the name, think I love the concept, not so sure about the $249 price and nearly 2kg weight.

Seriously, is this thing genius, or a sad comment on how we have more money than we know how to spend?

I’m conflicted. I kind of want one, while simultaneously seeing it as all that’s wrong in gadget world. Hopefully I can resolve my conflict without having to go out and buy one of them.
