Scripto, a great tool for writers


Raspberry Pi is a great hardware if our demands on computer or pc are few. We have recently seen how large software projects that were born on Raspberry Pi They jumped into the computer world, but what about the other way around?

The truth is that we have few cases that stand out in Raspberry Pi but the few that exist are very popular. The last of them is called Scripto, a hardware or rather laptop that uses FocusWrite and Raspberry Pi software to get a great tool for writers.

Pi Zero has become a great tool for writers thanks to Scripto

FocusWrite is a software that clears the screen and suspends certain processes of the operating system to only write, without any distraction. This tool is interesting for writers and for people who are easily distracted.

Scripto goes further and uses not only FocusWrite but also a Pi Zero board, a qwerty keyboard and a 7-inch Pixel Qi screen, so the result is a very interesting notebook or typewriter. In addition, thanks to Pi Zero and its capabilities, the user only connects to cloud storage services to save everything written in FocusWrite. So while you write, all your work is stored and protected by this storage system.

Scripto is not something that we can buy in any store, but it is will be possible shortly thanks to its crowdfunding financing that you will surely get. In addition, Scripto has covers that can be changed like old mobiles.

Scripto is a very curious tool, but the best of all is that We can build this tool ourselves or even improve it thanks to the possibilities of Free Hardware and of course, Free Software, software that makes Raspberry Pi more useful than ever.
