Ostrich – a diodeless monoblock keyboard with splayed pinky columns by keyboarddweebs.
Published January 6, 2023

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.
