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

The barobord by sadekbaroudi is a split monoblock keyboard with 40 keys, a 25% typing angle, and other goodies.

The handwired version was featured in KBD #35 but now it comes with PCBs for MX and Choc switches and a 8% negatively sloped case.

My father in law worked as an ergonomics guy for 10+ years, and he was telling me that the positive slope is actually bad, given it forces your wrists to angle upwards. He said flat or negative are better, so I decided to design a case that's negative to give it a try. I'm quite pleased with it! – sadekbaroudi.
