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

Fellow redditor James Gzowski (aka Flexyjerkov/gzowski) shared Proteus67, a 66-key monoblock split(?) ortholinear keyboard with displaced halves and offset bottom row, plus a rotary encoder in the middle (the 67th key).

Guess I should give some info about it, it's my own board design based on what I like with both the Planck ortho boards and my Lily58 – Flexyjerkov.

If you like this layout, you may check out the works of weteor and wayduh too.

Features

  • 14x5 layout (33 keys per hand)
  • MX, soldered
  • Rotary encoder in the middle
  • 13cm/130mm space between home position F/J keys
  • Underglow LEDs, angled 90 degrees to provide light to edges
