A sandwich-mount 30% monoblock keyboard with Alice layout from m.ki aka telzo2000. Based on the cool836A and sporting a Raspberry Pi Pico.
The PCB supports both Cherry MX and Kailh Choc hotswap sockets.
Unlike the Pro Micro, the Pico has a reset switch on the board body. Therefore, there are restrictions on the direction of its installation. I thought it would be better if the chips were not exposed, so I made a notch in the PCB – m.ki.
