Published October 13, 2022
Christian Lo aka sporewoh published his latest experimental keyboard: the mekko5X
Part cyberdeck, part ortholinear. With 2 knobs and 2 large OLED displays, this keyboard can be used for animations, displaying information, or for controlling a GUI. The small form factor makes the board a unique ortholinear keyboard, or a powerful macropad. It could also double as a MIDI controller! – sporewoh.
While it's still in a pre-beta prototyping phase, the current designs are open source for anyone to make one for themselves.
