Jason Allan aka @Drudge/jsallan shared the files of his flow-MX36, the first member of the flow product line. This is an MX-based keyboard, 36 keys with integrated trackball.
Hi folks, I’ve been working on this keyboard pretty much since January of this year, and I’ve finally got it to the point that I can call it done! If you’d like to build one, all files are available
here – Jason.
The top design considerations of this keyboard series are:
proven comfort from previous split designs of the author, e.g. the MX
Dacty-based Minidox and choc Trinidox trackball mandatory for enhanced convenience
a finished look, e.g. hidden switches, smooth lines, hidden plate etc.
integrated 34mm trackball using the PMW3360 sensor
ceramic trackball bearings
options for both choc v1 switches and MX switches
USB-C interlink cable
trays for various microcontrollers – Pi Pico and Pro Micro (in dev)
