Typing has become a necessary skill for just about everyone these days and over the years keyboards have undergone a tremendous evolution, from the tense, heavy keys of a typewriter to perfectly smooth touchscreen of a tablet. And while the technological age is all about options, for those who rely on their keyboard as arguably the most important tool in their professional lives, it’s widely agreed that this incredibly important tool has gone more in the direction of “whoa, cool!” form than function.
Which is why the Azio Industry First Vintage Luxury Keyboard is an ideal product for today’s keyboard market. First launched on IndieGoGo.com, the keyboard combines the technology of today’s modern computer keyboards with the comfort and style of an old-fashioned typewriter. Metals like brass and onyx are fused with genuine leather. Each Azio Industry First Vintage Luxury Keyboard has multiple USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity, yet also raised keys that make you feel like your computer was manufactured during some forgotten about Steampunk era. The keyboard links up to any desktop computer be it PC or Mac as well, so virtually any computer owner can seamlessly integrate it into their professional and social lives. It’s the perfect melding of retro meets modern in both form and function.
While the Azio Industry First Vintage Luxury Keyboard has smashed it’s $63,000 Indiegogo goal, there are still modestly priced ($95-$120) keyboards available through their product page. Seems like a good investment to buy here and now, as this stylish new technology is only bound to become more popular.
