Hemingwrite – A Digital Typewriter

Posted December 12, 2014

The Hemingwrite is a distraction free writing tool with a mechanical keyboard, e-paper screen and cloud backups. It offers the comforting nostalgia of old fashioned typewriters with the connectability of modern computers, minus the distractions of current devices.

Instead of typing onto paper, though, keystrokes appear on a six inch e-ink display, and instead of paper output, the results of writing efforts are stored in the cloud via WiFi. Your documents are synced to the cloud in real-time so you never have to worry about saving, syncing or backing up your work. It features a daylight readable, high contrast electronic paper screen for writing indoors, outdoors, in the daytime or at night. The battery will last four to six weeks between charging.

It helps  you draft, going from start to finish, then review and make edits later. You can backspace and review your work with page up/page down, but there is no copying and paste. If you aren’t happy with what you just wrote, you can write it again — just like everyone had to before 1979.

Decouple the first draft from the edited second, third, fourth, and beyond.


The idea of the Hemingwrite is to help writers to write a document the way it was done in the old days—in a peaceful, calm environment, there’s no email, text messaging or the web. I could make writers more productive in writing.
