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

The keyboard is based on Corne, but the author wanted more aggressive pinky stagger and 1u keys only.

Initially designed to use a ribbon cable. I got a bit annoyed by the bulky cable so I got the idea to make wireless modules to plug into the IDC sockets.

The design also features a ThinkPad R61 trackpoint module.
