Phase keyboard

Kyria stagger, Corne thumb cluster, Ferris-inspired electronics: Phase by mjpauly.
Published June 9, 2022

The cast aluminum case made by earth_hair drew my attention to the Phase, an open-source split keyboard with a reversible PCB and an on-board controller – designed by mjpauly.


  • 42 keys.
  • Kyria stagger, Corne thumb cluster, Ferris-inspired electronics.
  • USB-C
  • Reversible PCB for use with both hands.
  • MX-style key switch support with optional Kailh hot swap sockets.

(The author fixed the issue with version 1.0.0 so it's hopefully safe to use these files.)
