The DragonFruit is a VIK certified monoblock split by Protieusz.
Published November 8, 2023
Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Protieusz is back with another cool unibody split: the DragonFruit is a heavily modified version of Ariamelon's column staggered Honey Dew, featuring the Kiwano module.

The DragonFruit also has a PER56 encoder, PMW3360 sensor and RGB. The Kiwano module is connected by a VIK ribbon cable to the main PCB that sports an integrated RP2040.

Everything works with no issues. QMK code is borrowed from Aki27's Bally. It is now my favorite daily driver. STEP and gerber files are made public in my GitHub but pcb KiCad file will not since it is a pain to convert them from EasyEDA – Protieusz.

The DragonFruit just got VIK certified by Sadek. If you scroll all the way down (or click here), it is listed among the VIK certified devices.
