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

The Rolio V0.1 by MickiusMousius is the pre-release version of this cool split with roller encoder, nice!view display, and aluminum case.

I've been using it for a few weeks myself and its quite nice to use, particularly with the aluminium chassis (the GitHub repo has FDM and CNC designs) – MickiusMousius.

Version 1.0 is already underway: "The current model is nice, but there are a lot of improvements in the pipeline particularly regarding aesthetics."
