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

The Uncokeeb v0.3 is a modular, 8-key per finger concept keyboard with 28 chorded states per finger module (including off).

According to bluesocarrot, it's called the Uncokeeb because it makes you feel extremely uncoordinated while learning it.

It's a little bit inspired by the Datahand, and is mostly a response to stenography.

It features per-finger PCBs with 2 top-side buttons, 6 under-side buttons, GPIO expander and Adafruit qwiic connector.

More info on the concept, inspiration and some specs in the original thread.
