The Zygote keyboard is a wireless, QMK-compatible keyboard that can use Cherry MX, ALPS, or Kailh Low Profile "Choc" switches. Zygote was designed with ergonomics in mind. It is powered by one or two CR2032 coin cell batteries and is capable of lasting for six months before replacement. This keyboard is fully programmable. It features an ON/OFF switch for power saving purposes and will prevent errant keypresses if you choose to travel with it.
The Zygote is a 4-row split ergonomic ortholinear keyboard, with 4 thumb keys. These boards will come pre-programmed with the default keymaps, however you may download the QMK files and make whatever changes you can think of to customize the keyboard's layout.
This keyboard is sold as a kit. You will receive a partially assembled keyboard with a black switch plate,diodes,a bottom protector plate, mounting hardware, and a pre-programmed micro-USB receiver. Simply choose the variety of switches you want to use, solder the switches and diodes, insert the batteries, and you have a working wireless keyboard.
The default plates are black.
This is a group buy which will run until the end of July. Expect orders to be shipped some time in mid to late September.
