This is my corne keyboard. I built it with a case from Little Keyboards, and PCBs from MechBoards UK. If you are in the UK, I would not recommend ordering from little keyboards because the shipping and import costs outweigh the lower price of parts. Building the PCBs from scratch is also a pain in the ass because of the hotswap sockets, so I got them prebuilt.Little Keyboards
I've been using this keyboard for about a month at the time of writing this page and I am still unsure what I think of it. I still get mixed up with numbers and symbols because I'm not used to layers. I can't tell if I like or hate the switches, they're very light (which I like) but I can't tell if the lack of tactile feedback is positive or negative. Looking to try out some different switches in this board in the future.
I use it alongside my Elecom Deft Trackball with my PC.Elecom Deft
Stuff for keyboard nerds
- Layout: 40% ortholinear split w/columnar stagger
- Switches: Gateron clears (light linears)
- Keycaps: Lasered POM (stolen from a cherry G80-3000)
- Hotswap?: Yes!
- RGB? Yes! But I keep it disabled almost all the time
