Penguin is a low-profile RGB keyboard by u/Spiritual_Guide202 – inspired by Redox.

Penguin is a Redox-compatible low profile keyboard with per-key RGB – designed and open-sourced by Spiritual_Guide202 aka gorbit99.

Way too many keys for my taste but our preferences and workflow differ:

I have some reservations about less keys. My native language has a lot of extra characters besides the 26 English ones. I also do some light gaming and I'm a programmer. […] I already have most symbols as keycombos because of the language thing, having even the letters, or more characters like that would severely hurt my speed – gorbit99.
