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

Idank keeps equipping well-known and popular layouts with Pimoroni trackballs. After the trackball Corne here is the trackball Reviung41.

More trackball fun, this time a "split non-split". I've been faithful to my Cornes for years, but this is starting to grow on me, especially when traveling since it's so easy to carry – idankk.

The Reviung41 keyboard has a 41-key layout featuring 6x3 halves with 5 additional thumb keys. Idank's design is a low profile variation with a Pimoroni trackball.


  • 41x choc switches
  • integrated Pimoroni trackball
  • USB C Pro Micro

Original design by gtips, low profile variation by cyril279.
