Nakamura Hideki (aka hide-key) from Yokohama shared his latest project: the monoblock split testamatta #011 with exposed diodes and a XIAO controller.

After smaller projects like the Christmas ornament keypad and Lion head macropad, as well as the ortholinear Testamatta keyboard #010 with the cool homemade keycaps, the #011 is a more ergonomic unibody – low-profile Choc switches with MX spacing.


  • 46 keys (6x4-ish per half)
  • low-pro Choc switches
  • exposed SMD diodes
  • Seeed XIAO controller
