Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

This cute little monoblock split by weteor, the Tipper-TF, sports a uniquely positioned e-ink display.

(The design is not new but was brought to my attention only recently, by @daraku__neko's tweet.)

Specs

  • 34 keys
  • low profile
  • Choc v1 with choc spacing
  • angled hands
  • splayed columns
  • variable height on outer column: can be adjusted by a combination of pinheaders (1.27mm pitch, 1mm or 1.5mm height) + (at the moment) spacer PCBs.
  • 1.54'' epaper display by GoodDisplay (EPD - GDEW0154M09)
  • Bluetooth and USB connection
  • case files are supplied (STL, as well as FreeCAD files)
  • ZMK firmware support

According to weteor, MKB keycaps work great on the Tipper, but he prefers Pseudoku's Chicago Steno caps – shown in the photo above.
