As the laptops are getting thinner and thinner, the feel of the keyboard is deteriorating as well. Gone are the days when the keyboards felt ergonomically pleasant to use causing no stress injuries to the hand even if used for long periods of time. While people who heavily rely on the usage of a keyboard for their work take the workaround of buying a mechanical keyboard. Lofree is a wireless mechanical keyboard that caters to the needs of these people with a twist.Lofree wireless keyboard has the feel of a typewriter while being studded with all the new age tech to satiate the hunger of a techie.

Available in 3 colours, lofree wireless keyboard has a retro and elegant design coupled with Gateron switches to make it sound like a typewriter! Yes, you read that right. It sounds like a typewriter. The ergonomics of the keyboard also makes it easier to use but the positioning of the ‘up arrow’ key is different and will take some time getting used to.
Lofree wireless keyboard is capable of connecting with all the major devices that exist including Mac, Android and iOS devices. It even has Mac-specific shortcuts so that people who are using a Mac don’t lose out on the capability of using the shortcuts that do have a lot of utility. The keyboard is also capable of connecting with three different devices at a given point in time so it allows you to quickly switch between a laptop, a phone and/or a tablet.
The wireless keyboard also has different options and settings for the backlight for different devices which will make you aware as to which device the keyboard is acting as an input device for. The keyboard can also be used in wired mode in case you run out of battery.
Lofree wireless keyboard is available in three colours including:
- Pure White
- Turquoise Blue
- Sandstone Black
Currently, the makers of lofree wireless keyboard are running a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo and have already raised more than $400,000 from more than 4,000 backers (having an initial goal of only $10,000). The current perk at which you can book a lofree wireless keyboard for yourself is $79 but the number of slots available is limited. The device is expected to retail at a price of $129.
If you are looking for a wireless keyboard for your desk, lofree might be an ideal choice. You can back the project and expect the delivery of the keyboard by May 2017 here.
