This listing is for a set (top + bottom) Case / Plates

Please note that this makes a single hand/side of the keyboard, a complete keyboard requires 2 sets of PCB's and (additional) components.

Build your own ergonomic keyboard!

Lotus 58 Glow is a fully programmable 58-key split, ortho-columnar keyboard with a 4x6 main matrix and 4+1 thumb-keys per hand. Optional support for one OLED screen per hand/side showing information such as active layer, CapsLock/NumLock etc. as well as one Rotary Encoder per hand, with optional placement.

  • Layout very similar to the original Lily58 family which this is derived from
  • QMK and VIAL compatible, fully programmable keyboard
  • Kaihl Hot-swap sockets for Cherry MX compatible switches (3&5-pin)
  • All components through-hole and easily soldered for beginners
  • Reversible PCB design, the PCB for both hands are identical
  • Hands are connected using serial over TRRS-cable
  • Each hand uses a Pro Micro Arduino clone as the controller (Pro Micro/Elite C and equivalent)
  • Designed with a sandwich-style plate/case as part of the design
  • Basic build instructions are printed on the PCB for an easy build
  • Support for battery cut-off switch for wireless builds (nice!nano or equivalent)
