chocV - 36-key low-pro board

The chocV by brickbots is the 36-key low profile love child of the Horizon and BabyV keyboards.
Published December 16, 2021

This is a 36-key choc keyboard based on the Horizon construction (double PCB) and a trimmed down BabyV layout.

The Horizon features a very unique and innovative construction and when I saw it, I knew I had to build one... but I've become really enamoured with the Miryoku layout on my BabyV. So I decided to mash them together and see what happens. Thus the chocV was born! – brickbots.

Github repo:

The chocV builds on the two-PCB concept described by Steven Karrmann. A second PCB is put on the standard one matching all the components to protect them and your desk at the same time.
