Penna Retro Bluetooth Keyboard

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2018-03-03

Take your typing old school with the Penna Retro Bluetooth Keyboard. With your choice of Diamond or Chrome keycaps, this keyboard achieves a nostalgic aesthetic. But, even with this design, the abilities of the Penna Keyboard are huge. Connecting via Bluetooth 4.2, it’s compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows devices. In addition, it has macro bars to enable frequently used keys. The Penna Keyboard uses cherry key switches to give you superb tactical feedback as well as fast and accurate typing. Available in six colors, the Penna Keyboard gives you six months of idle time with just two AA batteries. In addition to all of this, the Penna Keyboard has a cradle to hold your tablet or smartphone at a 105-degree angle. This gives the perfect viewing angle for typing and researching. The Penna Keyboard perfectly combines retro design and modern ability.

How long does it take to receive, and what has been the biggest issue with these devices? I am strongly considering this as a Christmas gift for my fiancée who is simply obsessed with typewriters and really could use this for writing her book. Cheers!

Dear Minseok Yes. We have just finished payment.
We will send survey e-mail to backers this week. Regards
Elretron
Minseok
i have received mail that once the payment finished, i will get another mail to choose what i want, you will send another mail, right?
Elretron
Dear Areum We understand what you said
We will send you an e-mail after payment ends. Regards

Areum
Hey! Actually I chose Penna keyboard , pouch and $1 donor, but my credit card just has paid $1. When will pay my other charge?
Please check it...;(
Karl Hedstrom
@Rejani - Good point! I forgot this wasn't about reward fulfillment but failed payments. I believe KS only allows one survey per reward levels, so you are right that it would not be a good use for failed payments.
Elretron
Dear Rajani Isa Thanks for your comment.
We appreciate it. Regards

Dear Karl Hedstrom Kickstarter lets us use Survey form a few time. We can not use it whenever we want.
So, we need to use it carefully. Now, the payment doesn't finish. Most people did it, but some people have trouble about it.
We will do survey after payment is all done. Sorry for the inconvenience. We are asking for your kink understanding. Regards
Elretron
Rajani Isa
@Karl - it's not uncommon for creators - even those using the Kickstarter survey - to wait until after funds are collected to them
yejijeong
Yesterday, I got a email which is successfully purchased from kickstarter. so I wonder when I can get some emails about choosing my option of keyboard and address.
EunSeung Jeon
Hey I didn't pay this item because My visa card had little problem but now it works!! How can I pay again??
Karl Hedstrom
Why are you not using the KS survey to request information? I believe this is included as part of the fee they take for your project If I am wrong about this I apologize I know the KS survey isn't as nice as some after market company offers, but it will do the job, plus we are all reminded to complete it when we sign in to Kickstarter.
Elretron
Dear Backers We apologize for your inconvenience. There's been a mistake of sending information e-mails to a few customers whose payment didn't go through. We immediately stopped sending process and tried to retract the e-mails but some clients still received them unfortunately. We promise you that no such mistakes will be made in the future, and we will do our best to be more cautious in project operation. Regards
Elretron

You sent an email to several hundred backers revealing all the email addresses. How does this kind of mistake even happen?
The carelessness that you guys put into your public communication is painting a bad picture and I really hope that it does not reflect your quality control for Penna.
Renee
Blasting private email addresses in a public email to people needing to revise payment is totally unacceptable. You should have taken the time to blind copy (bcc) recipients instead of posting hundreds of addresses. After all my efforts to maintain my privacy this breach is infuriating.
Elretron
Dear Backers Thanks a lot for your pledge.
We will send you survey e-mail after funding ends.
You can choose keyswitch, keycap, color and language.
You don't have to write information here. Regards
Elretron
Eugene
Guys, please stop sharing your personal details online. The @creator will send out a survey later asking you to confirm your choice of colour for the Penna and delivery address.

Hello, is payment in progress now? When will I be paid?
Hari Sharma
Could you please make some codes for each model, switch and layout? It will be efficient to handle at both sides, I believe.
Elretron
Dear Jeanne Law We will post videos to bakcers when we send you survey e-mail.
I will help your choice. Regards
Elretron
Jeanne Law
@creator is it possible for you to post videos of how each of the cherry switches will sound? I'm having a hard time trying to decide what will work best for me. Thanks!
Elretron
Dear Eugene Thanks for your suggestion.
At first, backers just asked us black keycap with only matte black color.
So, we didn't know that backers want black keycap with other color.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
We will update it soon. Regards
Elretron
Eugene
Hi @creator, I know your image renderings are on updates. However, what I'm saying is, you said you would have image renderings for ALL combinations. However, for the black keycaps, you only prepared image for black keycaps on black Penna, on the basis that backers had only requested for black keycaps on black Penna. Is it possible for us to have options to choose the other Penna colors with black keycaps? I am contemplating the olive green with black keycaps. Thank you.
Elretron
Dear Eugene We already posted images on Updates. Regards
Elretron
Elretron
Dear EunSeung Jeon We can send you at August and you can choose your option after payment finishes. Regards

Dear Tan Kheng Wei Thanks for your suggestion.
We will think about it. Regards
Elretron
Eugene
Hi @creator, you had stated you will prepare all combination of Penna and keycap colours, so I thought you would be preparing those image renderings with a view to save backers the trouble of asking.
EunSeung Jeon
Hey! Congratulation for your success :) I want to ask you something.
When do you guys think can send it??
How can I choose the color?? I can wait till get this item! :)
Congratulation again!
Rok Je
What is your e-mail address?
Tan Kheng Wei
Hi Elretron,
Is there an option for diamond cap to get the Windows key as white color as well?
It seems weird with a different colour key for Windows :( Thanks.
Elretron
Dear Neo Owt We will send survey e-mail to all backers after payment finishes.
You can choose your options. Regards
Elretron
Elretron
Dear Matt Margolis Thanks for suggestion.
We will think of it. Regards

Elretron
Dear ma Sorry for making you misunderstand. Regards
Elretron
Neo Owt
Congratulations on your success!
I'd like to get a "pure white model with retro chrome keycaps and cherry red switch".
Thanks for all your effort.
Matt Margolis
I plan to get the retro-chrome keycaps, but is it possible to get an extra set of the diamond shape keycaps so i can switch them out should I want to?
ma
In a couple of comments down: "Dear Benros Siron Yes. It is FR printed real keycap" Just a misunderstanding then.
Elretron
Dear Eugene Black chrome keycap with Matte black color is made, as lots of people want it.
We didn't make Black chrome keycap with other color because there is no request. Regards
Elretron
Eugene
Hi @creator, how come there isn't an image rendering for green with black key caps?
Elretron
Dear ma Keycap is laser etched.
We have never said printed keycap.
Where did you see it? Regards
Elretron
Elretron
Dear Mobashir Mohammad It is just reference. We will share high resolution images when payment finishes. Regards
