idb Ergo

This is the third idb designed keyboard I had the opportunity to get my hands on. The idb Ergo is a different kind of typing experience with the 18 degree angled layout and still being a single unit. In true current idb spirit the idb Ergo is plateless making it flexible, without being spongy, and reducing vibrations. Case is milled out of solid aluminum and anodized in silver color. PCB is held in place in the case with a few tabs that's dampened with O-rings. The layout is 60% WKL with three additional switches top left. Due to the split the single spacebar is replaced with 2.75u and 2u ones.

Switches are Revo whites lubed with Tribosys 3203 and stabs are GMK ones but with gold wires. Currently the keycaps are GMK Carbon with orange spacebars and a carbon-themed elven artisdan on Esc.
