Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

Fixed-width unibody split with OLED screen and exposed diodes.

The width matches where the author's fully split boards naturally end up for comfort. It also ends up being the perfect width to set on top of a 15” MacBook.

The hole in the middle is a pass-thru for a stand-off for mounting a base. There are several more hidden underneath the keys on each side, also for mounting top plates.

I didn’t invest much effort in planning case or plates on this prototype, expecting I’d find some changes for which I’ll want a follow-up revision – I was right. (u/jrp22)
