Mechanical keyboards are a rich and fantastic world made up of enthusiasts and builders who try their hand at increasingly sophisticated technical and design solutions. The customization of every detail, the choice of materials and the craftsmanship of the construction make the difference in this kind of keyboards.
In addition to the pleasure of typing and tactile feedback, there is the satisfaction of creating something functional and complex with your own hands.
Inspired by Plaid, the well-known kit for engaging in the manual construction of mechanical keyboards, Yiancar has created Gingham. This is a 60% thru-hole keyboard board with ANSI and ISO support, split right Shift and split Backspace.
Programmable via QMK, this kit is a great idea for anyone who wants to practice soldering or even understand how a board’s electronics actually work and take the first steps of self-made mechanical keyboards.
Comes complete with all necessary components and instructions; just add switches, stabilizer keycaps and obviously get a welder! The kit also comes with a practical case, useful for storing the assembled keyboard.
