A new unibody split designed by dohn-joh: Alias – with lever keycaps.
Published June 25, 2024
Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

Alias is a monoblock split, designed and shared by dohn-joh after his previous true split project, the Leveret – with the hallmark thumb lever keycaps but also a dongle this time.

the dongle […] is plug and play wireless. I'm not sure if there's official zmk documentation for dongle mode yet, but if you poke around on the zmk discord there's a lot of helpful info there. I'll eventually push my zmk module to github so others can copy the relevant lines – dohn-joh.

The keycaps are based on Pseudoku's DES but are lower profile.



  • 36 keys (5x3+3)
  • Choc v1 and v2 compatible, hotswap
  • custom 3D printed keycaps (low-pro DES variant)
  • lever keycaps
  • splay
  • wireless dongle
