Gerrit Gazic aka Geaz84 shared the simplyKeeb S60, a fairly large ortholinear split keyboard with number row.

This is the second member of the author's simplyKeeb family, which includes an earlier, fully 3D printed model as well.

After using my old build quite a while, it became obvious that I really like it! But the printed keyboard had a few flaws (for example the hotswap sockets won't take many switch swaps, before they wear off) – Geaz84.

The S60 is the PCB variant supporting MX switches. It uses on-board SMD components, including an RP2040 for the master and an IO Expander for the secondary half.
