Portable Digital Typewriter

They discontinued the AlphaSmarts, but they're so beloved that there's a strong market for picking up used ones. They developed a number of models (I think initially targeting usage in schools), and the newest is the Neo2.

Writers love the distraction-free environment, and I also find it great for first drafts.

(there are also new electronic typewriters that are trying to achieve the same thing — I’m sure you’ll find them if you google — but I’m turned off by how expensive and weirdly hipsterish they seem to be 🤷‍♀️)
