The Orange Boy Ergo (aka OBE) is our take on a super budget ergo / Alice-like kit featuring an optional encoder and two status LEDs.
If you want to build it to work with Bluetooth, try building
with the PillBug and adding a battery.
The Orange Boy Ergo (aka OBE) is our take on a super budget ergo / Alice-like kit. Not everyone has hundreds of dollars to spend on something they might not enjoy. We went with a layout that includes arrow keys since most people need them. There’s also 3 macro keys on the left hand side but you could have a knob and 2 macro keys instead.
If you’re familiar with our previous products, you won’t be surprised that this is yet another through hole kit. The biggest difference as far as the component list goes will be the BlackPill. The BlackPill is a very affordable dev board option that supports USB-C from the start and its installation is essentially identical to more common dev boards such as the Pro Micro.
The OBE has a few layout options, not too many. You can do a giant right shift and/or split backspace.
MX Switch support
Maximum of 70 switches required
Status LEDs (Num + Caps)
RGB LED strip headers
