That’s probably because the Penna gets everything right versus the earlier Hemingwrite, an all-in-one, old school style world processor that, despite its funding success, was the target of derision when it launched.
Instead of forcing you to use an antiquated screen and unwieldy syncing and saving process, the Penna can pair with existing iOS, Android and Windows mobiles devices. Additionally, the device only needs two AA batteries to operate and comes in black, white, pink, green, and (of course!) faux wood color.
This thing also has a Macro Bar that’s fashioned to look like the return lever on an old typewriter. It allows you to trigger a saved action (enter, backspace, as well as frequently used words or phrases).
You can pretend you don’t want this thing, but just remember, you aren’t required to wear suspenders or join a food co-op to use it — this is quirky tech that’s actually quite sensible.
The Penna weighs just 1.7 pounds, costs $99 and is scheduled to ship to backers in August.
