Batreeq: A 30-key pseudosplit keyboard by AlSaMoMo – with a trackball and scroll ring.
Published November 7, 2022
The monoblock split Batreeq by Alaa Saad Mansour aka AlSaMoMo features a trackball, scroll ring and haptic buzzer feedback.
I have been using 30 key boards for a while and they have been the most comfortable. I wanted to learn how to integrate a trackball into them. So I designed this board – AlSaMoMo.
Based in Berlin, Alaa has been churning out ergo keyboards for the last couple of months, and the Batreeq – meaning "penguin" – is the latest one in the long list of his 30% splits and monoblocks.
All the boards you can find in his GitHub repo are/have:
- 34/32/30 keys
- Tenting puck support
- JST connector for battery
