Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Ergonaut Keyboards is a collaboration of well-known keyboard designers under a common brand with the goal to create widely available wireless ergonomic keyboards.

Pavel Glushkov (Chocofi), Rafael Yumagulov (Dao), Alexander Krikun (Sporne, Nijuni, Skean) and others teamed up and released Ergonaut One. Inspired by foostan's Corne and Rafael's Dao, this debut project of the team is a Xiao-based split with low-pro Gateron switches.

Our first project is the Ergonaut One: a Xiao-based wireless Gateron KS-33 split. The kit was designed to be very simple to build and print the parts for, yet to be sleek and long-lasting (with 260 mAh per half) – krikun98.


  • 42 keys split (6x3+3)
  • Low-pro Gateron KS33 switches
  • hotswap
  • XIAO nRF52840 MCU
  • reversible PCB



More to come:

Tactile KS-33 have turned out to be quite nice, leagues above Choc Browns, and we have a 3*5 variant on the way with a few other projects planned after that.
