Bloq, Kunsteak wanted to create a minimal looking keyboard (the MCU had to be below the keys and the PCB would not protrude beyond the keycaps) that had a lowered thumb cluster on a separate PCB after getting some inspiration from ak66666's stacked Thumbs Up! keyboards.
The thumb cluster is awful on a flat surface but when tented to 45 deg it's absolutely perfect – Kunsteak.
This open-source split keyboard is both Choc and MX compatible.
36 keys (5x3+3 halves)
