Ostrich – a diodeless monoblock keyboard with splayed pinky columns by keyboarddweebs.

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

Alex Miller shared his new 34-key unibody split: the Ostrich.

This looks like a mash-up of his two previous projects: the monoblock Crowboard and the split Budgy – both sporting Pi Picos. The Ostrich is like a reunited Budgy but with some pinky splay.

My latest creation. I call it the Ostrich. Single board, diodeless, 34 key keyboard with splayed pinky columns. Inspired by Reviung's canted MCU. The project is also open source – keyboarddweebs.
