I. want. this. so. badly.
I don’t remember where I first came across the Hemingwrite (maybe a Verge article many eons ago), but an email popped up in my inbox this morning about a pre-sale (I love future Zoë when her brain is turned on.) Hemingwrite is a digital typewriter that saves all of your work and syncs it to your document storage cloud of choice (Microsoft Word, Evernote, Google Docs, etc.) There are SO many reasons why it would be the best thing ever for me.
I’m horrible at getting distracted while I’m on the Internet.
When I need to work on something school-related and I have to look something up, I spend no less than 15 minutes on Facebook/Twitter/Feedly after looking said thing up. The Hemingwrite would be fantastic, as I could write without having the allure of unlimited browsing tabs.
The battery life would make Walden a real possibility.
It’s easily portable, so I could take it anywhere and not have to worry about a power cord. No power cord = Zoë’s best friend. And a 4+-days-of-writing battery life? I’m sold.
It would be awesome to write on.
I really don’t like typing on my iPhone or an iPad, just because I don’t get the tactile satisfaction of pushing keys. Can you imagine writing on this though? An absolute dream.
That should be enough to convince you of how awesome the Hemingwrite really is.
For all of these reasons, Hemingwrite deserves a humongous gold star. It has a really steep price tag, so I’m definitely going to save up and buy one– hopefully by using this tactic.
What do you think about the Hemingwrite?
