The Waka is a BlackPill powered ortholinear DIY kit. This will be another FR4 kit with a PCB, switch plate, and bottom plate. The PCB has a reduced footprint so the board is more conducive to acrylic stack cases without becoming too bulky. All you’ll need to provide to have a complete board is stabilizers, keycaps, and switches.

Yes, you will have to solder, but if you’ve soldered switches into a board, this is just as simple. A BlackPill is a dev board similar to a Pro Micro and is installed using the exact same process.

As with all of our products, we will be keeping the Waka in stock after the initial GB.
