Like putting on an old record or driving a stick shift, there’s nothing quite like typing on a typewriter. With their heavy actuations, old-school colorways, and audible clicks and clacks, mechanical keyboards come close—and with the Mercury Rocketeer they’ve inched even closer. Designed by Zslane (who also designed the Dasher & Dancer and G20 Semiotic custom keycaps), the Mercury Rocketeer is based on the Swiss-made Hermes Rocket typewriter. Originally developed in the 1940s, the typewriter was known for its portability, build quality, and well-rounded features—all of which are on bold display here. Made with a tall, curved powder-coated aluminum case in soothing seafoam green, the Rocketeer evokes the nostalgic vibes of the classic original. What’s more, the keycaps are done in the same vintage green color, with themed novelties that further emphasize the design of the legendary typewriter.
