What Record Consoles and Modern Typewriters Have in Common | LUNO

Thought record consoles were dead? Nope, they never died. In fact, we at LUNO are one of the few companies in the world that make modern record consoles, and people love them.

Thought typewriters were dead? Well they might have been for a while, but they’re back now in the form of modern typewriters.

Companies such as Vinpok and KnewKey, that specialize in creative 3C accessories (computer, communication, and consumer electronics) for iPhones and MacBooks, make retro dual mode mechanical keyboard that have a classic look. They are inspired by the vintage design of typewriters, and gives creatives, particularly writers, the thrill of using an analog writing tool. It provides a retro writing experience that does not compare to using a laptop or the keyboard of a desktop computer. Theses battery powered modern typewriters can work for 50 hours on a single charge. Both Windows and Mac OS operating systems are supported by these modern typewriters, can connect to your phone via Bluetooth, and connect to your laptop via a USB cord. There is a clip stand where paper would be inserted to receive a tablet or smartphone, and dynamic backlit keys (with 5 levels of brightness) that make small clicking sounds to give you that working on an old typewriter feel. There’s even a scroll knob, not for paper of course, but to adjust your clipped-in device. The carriage return bar is used to switch between USB and Bluetooth modes.

Unlike the typewriters of old that were very heavy because of their printing mechanisms, these modern typewriters are lightweight and portable. You can easily move them around the room, and take them with you on the go, just like a laptop or a tablet.

We love seeing how the desire for analog products like vinyl albums and record consoles also exists with writing tools.
