I need to get my #Freewrite (https://getfreewrite.com/products/freewrite-smart-typewriter) project back on the table. I wanted to emulate the functions of one without paying for it; Got this typewriter (it's flawless) from a thrift store for $9. I plan on sticking a #raspberrypi in it to do the heavy lifting of connecting to wifi and capturing the key-presses and uploading them to my Nextcloud account.
What am I missing? Wouldn't an old laptop do? Or is it the battery life and portability that makes this attractive?
Granted an R Pi project also sounds perfect.
@randynose yeah, it could, it is more about having nothing BUT a writing app that is tactile, yet modern enough to save the content digitally. This way it is you against a blank sheet of paper. It is way more intimating that way. No distractions...
Hey, if you hand craft something that are proud of... That's cool. For other things there's Master Card.
I hand crafted a crystal radio for a friend back when I was in the 6th grade. It was awesome. IMHO.
Wish I taken pictures of it.
