Screenwriters, Want a Pared Down Writing Experience? Meet the Hemingwrite Digital Typewriter — nofilmschool.com

Electronic typewriters are not a new technology; they've been around for 30 or 40 years. Hell, there are even those conversion kits that transform old typewriters into digital ones using some circuitry and an iPad. However, the Hemingwrite not only offers cloud technology for easy accessibility, but it works right out of the box requiring nothing more than to push the on button. It's features include a 6" daylight readable, high contrast electronic paper screen, 4+ weeks of battery life, mechanical keyboard switches, status bar, folder navigation (you can work on three documents at once), Wi-Fi, and cloud storage. Essentially, the Hemingwrite gives you the bare minimum in order to keep you focused solely on writing -- a recreation of pre-computer writing conditions. For instance, you can backspace and scroll through your work, but there is no way to cut and paste text. The creators explain that, "The intent is to force you to just keep going! If you aren’t happy with what you just wrote, you can write it again."
