Your devices should help you
focus on the important:
changing the world
with your writing.
Time is our most valuable resource. Treat it that way and don't waste your life.
We build ethical technology that respects your attention. With varType you stay in control.
Go from the first word to a published book.
All with one device and zero distractions.
varType is silent, unintrusive, focus-enhancing and robust. It can be used out in nature like an analog device or a book.
The perfect device to disconnect and be creative "IRL". Life is all about balance.
varType has a big and amazing ePaper display. It doesn’t distract, is readable in sunlight and keeps you healthy by not emitting any blue light.
The most pleasant haptic feedback when typing.
varType's mechanical switches with real travel are fundamentally different from the plastic switches of most modern laptops.
You'll never want to write on something else.
If you want, you can auto-save your texts into the cloud. So no data is lost and what you wrote is available on all your devices.
For more privacy, use varType as a USB device or plug a USB device into it and transfer files securely.
In a hyperconnected world we give away incredible insight into our habits, our feelings and our behavior. This leaves us vulnerable to manipulation.
varType is fully encrypted and usable offline so no one can read what you write before you share it. No matter if it's a sensitive report, a personal diary, or a manuscript for a new book.
varType is low-power and energy-efficient. Because it is repairable you don't have to worry about it being e-waste in a few years.
varType is open and free ("libre"). You can verify the code to be sure it does what it's supposed to do. Use, study, share and modify varType.
You own the device. Not the other way around.
We live in a world of constant distraction.
It's time for ethical technology that keeps us focused and not in a hamster wheel.
Reduce to the max.
Privacy is the foundation of a free society.
Only when we can write and share thoughts without risk do we enjoy freedom.
Full encryption protects you from unauthorized access to your data.
Open software and hardware let you ensure no malicious code runs on the device.
Own your devices.
Not the other way around.
By protecting sensitive data we want to help in the global struggle for human rights.
We the people have the power. Let this be reflected in the technology we use everyday.
We don't want to create just another device.
It should be durable, open and free, compatible with your existing tech, and use as little energy as possible.
