iPad Gear: Rymek retro mechanical keyboard for nostalgic typists
I grew up during the transition from typewriters to computers and used both for many years. Even the first computers used mechanical keyboards that click and they are hard to find these days. If you long for those days, you’ll want to back the Rymek keyboard (TBD) when it launches on Indiegogo. I don’t know what the price will be, but if you sign up and be an early adopter, you could save 40 percent.

I liked the beautiful typewriter-inspired design and that the Rymek is available in two color combinations; black with brown buttons or cream with lighter brown buttons. I prefer the black model because it looks like a classic typewriter. I also liked the satisfying mechanical keys combined with modern conveniences like multi-device Bluetooth and backlights. Yes, you can connect via USB or Bluetooth to four devices that can be based on Android, iOS, macOS and Windows. There is also a volume **** and a smartphone / tablet holder. Of course, I am writing this review using the Rymek keyboard!
