Inspired by predecessors and projects like the Corne, KeySeeBee, Crkbd choc magnetic case and Jian, Enki42 is a 42-key low-profile split with magnetic case (7x2 mm magnets).


  • 42 keys (Kailh Choc v1)
  • Per switch RGB
  • Serial / i2c
  • Choc spacing
  • minimum thickness (without case 13 mm, with case 1.1 mm more)
  • RGB LED footprints and switches have minimal clearance (stick well without soldering)
  • Compatible with Corne via controller pins

Enki is the Sumerian god of water. These symbols are painted on the back of the board, the other half says "42" in Sumerian – aroum2.
