The Chocofly is a 60-key low-pro monoblock split by vitvlkv.
Published November 18, 2021

Vitaly Volkov, designer of the Avalanche keyboard, came up with a pseudosplit design this time.

The Chocofly is an ergonomic keyboard with 4x6 column staggered keys, thumb arch (60 keys total) plus one rotary encoder.

The main idea of the Chocofly is to be thin and suitable for "sonshi"-style usage (putting it ontop the laptop keyboard). It is also pretty minimalistic - no LEDs, OLEDs and in my build it even has no case. It's just a PCB with switches on top of it and small silicone legs on the bottom. And this setup works pefectly! Well, for me at least - vitvlkv.
