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

I mentioned the Monkeyboard or Supersplit, Tarneo's (Tarneaux) first keyboard design with an intimidatingly large number of keys, in a previous editorial. One conclusion of that project was: You don’t need that many keys. His second attempt is called Triboard – with 48% less switches. ;)

Generated with Ergogen and then routed by hand, the Triboard is a low-profile split keyboard with Seeed XIAO controllers. Its main feature is being super small and therefore portable:

Is tiny, less than 10x10 cm for each half, making it easy to carry in a point-and-shoot camera carrying bag – Tarneo.

On the wireless version, one thumb key needs to be removed on each half to fit the battery (therefore it is only 34 keys).


  • 34-36 keys (5x3+2/3)
  • hotswap low-pro Choc
  • Seeed XIAO controllers
