Introducing the Skreetyl. A custom made variant of the traditional Dactyl Manuform with key switch spacing reduced to bare minimums for better finger reach and reduced strain!
Ergonomic Design The design is based on the popular Dactyl Manuform with the thumb cluster redesigned for better access for normal thumb movement. Key spacing has been optimized to allow for keycaps to be as close as possible without collision on the horizontal rows. Vertically, steps have been taken to shrink spacing but due to 3d printing constraints there is still some gap for structural integrity. Finger layout is the standard 5x6 with the middle and pointer sub row keys moved to the thumb cluster. The key sweep is based on a 140° arc to accommodate smaller to medium finger lengths slightly better. Large Silicone Rubber Anti-slip feet. Finally, the frame is printed inhouse using a variety of printers at .3mm layer heights and a 4mm nozzle. Currently, only using PolyTerra pla as it has proven to have terrific durability (matte filament is more flexible thus less likely to break from shocks).
Internals Using opensource and custom designed flexible PCBs to provide hotsocket mounting for all Cherry style switches and easy manufacturing. Highspeed diodes are hand soldered and cross pcbs are connected via quality Silicone 28awg wire. XIAO control boards have power pads coated with MG Chemicals Silicone Conformal Coating to minimize potential loss due to liquid spills. All orders include Gateron KS-9 Pro 2.0 Yellow Switches, and blank PBT keycaps using the DSA profile (60 1u keys) in either black or white. Batteries are LIR2450 Lithium Rechargeable batteries.
Software/Hardware Built on the powerful nRF52840 chipset with the SeeedStudio XIAO board. This allows for both USB-C and Bluetooth 5.0 connections for both PC, Mac, and Android connection. The XIAO provides integrated Battery management and charge control allowing for safe management of the included easily found Lithium LIR2450 pin cell battery.
