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.
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.
The first hand-wired MANIBUS prototype was born, followed by experiments with PCB design and an exploration of materials—plastics, metals, and even wood.
The fifth prototype, with a significant reduction in dimensions by switching from a sandwich to a unibody design, as well as a redesigned thumb cluster.
Blank Tehnologii SRL was officially registered as a company in our hometown of Timișoara, Romania.
