Removed 4 more keys from my daily driver. First pcb i designed. (Turns out to be a corne with angled columns) – Michael Gunawan.

This keyboard was inspired by Slepet that has more stagger in some columns and only three thumb cluster keys instead of five.

The open-source PCB comes in two versions: the default one uses one Pro Micro with Amphenol 10 cable and the mirrored PCB supports two Pro Micros with TRRS or one Pro Micro with Amphenol 10 cable.

GitHub repo:

[...]forgot to explain: Using amphenol or lan cable makes it so that every row and column between 2 halves are connected, this makes the controller detect it as 1 whole keeb.
