Keychron Q11 QMK Custom Mechanical Keyboard

Microsoft ergonomic keyboards understand that ergonomic typing position is not hands perpendicular to the keyboard. And thus keyboards like Sculpt offer you a dome, angle upward, and kind of split keyboard. The Keychron Q11 QMK you see here takes that design a step further but literally splits up the keyboard so you can explore the angles and positions that fit you best.

Like the Keychron K3, the Keychron Q11 QMK Custom Mechanical Keyboard has a 75% layout on an aluminum CNC machined body but it is split. It is split at the F6/F7, cutting down the 6/7, T/Y, G/H, and B/N, and halving the space bar.

The brilliant part about this unique keyboard is that you can also use it as a non-split keyboard by linking the two halves with a bridge cable, or if so desired, you can use the left half only, or the right half on its own. However, it does not appear that you can merge the two halves into one single keyboard. It will be dope if it could do that.

Under the hood, it features a powerful ultra-low-power ARM architecture MCU equipped with 128K Flash and boasts a polling rate of 1,000 Hz out-of-the-box.

Other notables include programmable with QMK/VIA, a customizable rotary encoder knob, hot-swappable switches, pre-lubed Gateron G Pro switches, south-facing RGB, and OSA (OEM Spherical Angled) PBT keycaps.

The keyboard is compatible with both macOS as well as Windows, and a has a physical slider switch for toggling between the two. It comes with an additional set of customized keycaps for macOS and Windows too. Moreover, you can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

The Keychron Q11 QMK Custom Mechanical Keyboard sells for US$205 with the Full Assembled Knob. However, it looks like it is sold out at this time.
