QWERKY retro keyboard and Tablet docking station design

relive the authenticity of prison-badgered time-precision

this is not another post about William S Burroughs Naked Lunch, though you can see why one might be forgiven for thinking so... nor is it really about the factory-work-ethic and quantification of gross human productivity.

While we all realise that the cynical QWERTY keyboard system was originally designed by engineers to 'slow down' the slave-typists of the mega banking and publishing corporations and public offices i.e. minimise the jamming of the mechanical arms that slammed the metal letters at the ink-ribboned page, this retro QWERKY bluetooth keyboard and Tablet docking station design is just ... gorgeous.

Qwerkywriter's Return Bar functions as an ENTER key by default. But it's also programmable, remembering up to 5 characters. [source QWERKY]

Forget the cruel historical relevance of this manacle of human expression, it does exactly what it says on the tin; looks good.
