Ryan Schenk aka rschenk/actionbust released his Re-gret keyboard, a cool monoblock split with some splay – based on the Egret by Ryan.

Certainly a more re-fined re-mix that I have no re-grets about making – Ryan.

Compared to the original Egret, besides having two thumb buttons per side, the Re-gret has a larger angle between the halves, and the ring and pinky fingers have more stagger and more splay. It also has a Xiao MCU which is "cheaper and cuter" than a nice!nano.

Specs

  • 34 keys (5x3+2 per half)
  • Seeed Xiao BLE or RP2040 controller (wireless or wired)
  • Choc V1, Choc spacing, hotswap
  • RGB underglow when plugged in
  • QMK and ZMK firmware
