Staggered ortholinear layout

We moved frequently-used keys such as Backspace or Enter to a reimagined thumb cluster and opted for a staggered ortholinear layout, compatible with standard keycap sets.


Unibody aluminium + magnets!

Our PCBs are seated in precision-machined unibody aluminium cases containing multiple neodymium magnets, opening up a world of possibilities with palm rests and other accessories.


Adapts to your posture

You can move each half freely across your desk to follow your posture throughout the day, reducing strain on your shoulders and wrists.


Fits into your setup

Replace your mouse, plug in either half as a standalone device, or customize with accessories—it's your choice.

Compatible with standard TKL keycap sets.


Hot-swappable switches

No soldering needed, so it's easy to upgrade or repair your build, extending its life.


Open-source firmware & USB-C

Connect the two halves using a TRRS audio cable, plug into your setup through USB-C, and use VIA to customize your layout.
