The name Lua is Portuguese for moon (not affiliated with the programming language).
Do you like the layout of the faux fox keyboard (ffkb), but want a split? Well, look no further! This is directly modeled after that, and includes most of the same features. It’s a reversible split 42 OR 36 key with the following features:
- 6th column can be broken off to make this a 36 key split board
- Per key LEDs (SK6812 mini-e)
- MX switch support
- get those mill max sockets, because unlike most fingerpunch boards, this one is not hotswap enabled
- EC11 rotary encoders under the palms
- Pimoroni trackball footprint on the inside edge
- The fingerpunch case does not have a way to mount it, so you’ll need to devise your own
- SparkFun qwiic and Adafruit stemma connector
- Access the I2C on your controller and hack away with whatever feature you want!
- Wireless support with a JST connector and on/off switch footprint
- Bring that nice!nano and rid yourself of cables
- Note that this uses plate mount switches
Comes with 2 pcbs. In order to complete this build, you’ll need:
- 44, 42, 38, or 36 diodes (depends on whether you use 5 or 6 columns and if you use the rotary encoders)
- 42 or 36 keyswitches and keycaps
- 2 pro micro, elite-c, nice!nano, or equivalent
- 2 TRRS jacks
- a case
- 42 or 36 SK6812 mini-e leds (optional)
- reset switches (optional)
- This listing is for the PCB only. If you’d like any of the other components or case, please go to the product pages to add them separately.
- Although this supports the Pimoroni Trackball, it is not recommended if you are using wireless. The Pimoroni consumes lot of battery, and will drain it at an unreasonable rate
