Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

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
  • Wireless
  • Diodeless
  • Tenting puck support
  • JST connector for battery
