Description

1.5u mods so the pinky isn't cramped while playing games. Ortholinear alphas because staggered rows or columns just doesn't work well for WASD. RGB backlighting and QMK to drive it all. Because the case is made of PCB material and doesn't use screws/standoffs, it's very cheap to produce.

Split KBs like the Iris are 13mm thick. Zen is only 8mm thick. The case is still strong and has flex comparable to acrylic. Building the keyboard is tough because I had to use all SMD components, and you can't access the diodes or LED's once it's all together. The top plate allows the switches to be disassembled.
