Centromere Mini

Regular price $149.00

The Centromere Mini keyboard is a split wireless  ergonomic keyboard that can be built with low profile Kailh Choc switches. It is fully programmable and customizeable. The Centromere Mini can also use hot-swap sockets to change out your switches at will. Two colors of plate options are available, black or white.

This keyboard has two switch options: 

  1. Hot swappable Kailh sockets (Choc switches)
  2. Permanently soldered Choc switches 

It comes with a USB receiver module that allows you to customize the keymaps and layers via the popular QMK framework for mechanical keyboards. Having a receiver allows you to minimize wireless latency compared to a board with Bluetooth, and allows for extended battery life. Program the keyboard and change the keymap with a single command by downloading the QMK fork from the Southpaw Design Github. The Centromere and Centromere Mini keymaps should be in mainline QMK repository soon.

The kit includes the wireless receiver, PCBs, mounting hardware, and plates of your choice.  All keyboards will  be pre-programmed with default keymaps, so you just need to solder switches to get started with your new Centromere. It features an on-off switch to save power and prevent errant keypresses when traveling with the board. Each half is powered by a CR2032  coin cell battery. One coin cell battery will last a couple of months of daily use.
