Keyboards have undeniably been getting more efficient over the years, to the delight of desk drones like me. But there’s always that part of your brain which secretly longs for an old-school typewriter. Something on which you can feel yourself hammering out content.
Of course someone’s done it. They’ve even successfully crowdfunded it. It’s The Lofree Four Seasons Wireless Keyboard.
We must admit, the high-tech mechanical engineering combined with retro typewriter design does look pretty damn cool.

It’s wireless of course, and comes in four pretentiously-named colors: Hibernal Black, Aestival Blue, Autumnal Grey, and Vernal White.
(Is it just me who thinks that Vernal White sounds like the straight-laced cop in a dark 90s Hollywood cop drama? The guy who’s always holding up the investigation by trying to do things ‘by the book’?)
There’s an improved keyboard layout and optimization of the switch under large-sized keys which allows for less forceful typing. And look at those keys, aren’t they adorable?
Here’s some facts:
- Provides a more comfortable, refined tactile feel that makes touch-typing easier.
- Works wirelessly or wired.
- Large keycaps & improved backspace key turbocharge your daily typing & blind typing.
- Retro design combines with cutting-edge tech adds a touch of glamour to your personal style.
- Engineered for Mac users featuring Apple’s keyboard layout.
- Gateron blue switches require lighter pressure to actuate the switch for more comfortable typing.
- Supports three levels of backlighting.
