The split mechanical keyboard market has been gaining more traction in recent years, but we see a lot of untapped potential. In 2018, we identified a need for a well-built aluminum split keyboard, as most options are unlikely to be consistent daily drivers due to their DIY nature.
Manibus combines great ergonomics with a clean and understated design that compliments the rest of your computer peripherals.
The two thumb keys are intentionally positioned next to the rest of the keys as opposed to having a separate, angled cluster like you’d find on most split keyboards. After years of research and prototyping, we concluded that this layout complements the natural position of your wrists, reducing strain to a minimum.
The keyboard has a total of 62 keys (58 x 1u, 2 x 1.5u, 2 x 2.25u). We chose these exact key sizes in order to accommodate more keycap sets: you can use a standard TKL keycap set (with alpha keys & modifiers) on Manibus.
