After teasing it a few days ago, Sebastian Stumpf (aka ADreamOfStorms) published the design files of his Abomination, a split keyboard with a Cirque trackpad, encoder, some tactile buttons and splay.
When I came up with the idea of this I thought it would be really hideous because of the lack of symmetry and so I dubbed the project "abomination", but now I'm actually really happy with how this turned out – Sebastian.
36 keys (3x5+3 layout with heavy stagger and some mild splay)
Cirque 40mm trackpad
Four 6mm tactile buttons and ec12 encoder on the left
Powered by two keeb.supply 0xCB Helios controllers (Elite-C compatible)
Fully 3d printed case
Nylon and resin printed DES keycaps (on light bobagums)
There are two plate versions for the case. A thin and wobbly default version and also a 'thick' variant that sits on the PCB rock solid and the switches pop in with ease. The author recommends the thick version, although it will consume about 4 times the material compared to the thin one.
