Technology has always progressed at incredibly fast pace. In one generation we’ve gone from simply staring at the moon to having phones in our pockets with more power than the computers that got us there. Our taste in design, on the other hand, has never quite moved as quickly nor in as straight a line. The result of this mismatch are items like the Azio Retro Classic Keyboard.
This Bluetooth-enabled backlit mechanical keyboard is framed by zinc aluminum alloy, features a wooden surface, and keys that strongly resemble ones you’d find on old typewriters. And thanks to a large 6,000 mAh Lithium Ion battery, this keyboard can function for up to a year without being recharged (so long as the keys aren’t being backlit – in which case it can function for 2 months). While this device definitely doesn’t come on the cheap, when you consider the fact that Apple Magic Keyboards go for between $100 and $130, this unique desktop add-on seems a bit more reasonable. Right now you can pick these keyboards up in the above wood, or in leather.
