Inspiration

Inspired by igloos, this function row-less (FRL) TKL was designed with a particular idea in mind:
to combine the grace of curvature of an igloo with a solid bottom line.




Design

It is available in WK (WinKey) and WKL (WinKeyLess) options.




Why Plateless?

As two enthusiasts fond of the unique bouncy feeling a plateless keyboard is capable of
producing, we have decided to go in full with the plateless design for Igloo.

Mount type: Plateless Tadpole Mount
Front height: 17.34mm

are those divots where the tadpoles rest so that you can achieve a lower typing height?

Right and also so that the tadpoles do not move.
I originally wanted the board to be lower, but this was the lowest I could get sadly. haha

the tadpoles inserted into the top case should be more than enough to keep the assembly from moving. were you seeing xz movement in prototyping?

it's really a shame that a solder pcb mount doesn't offer ISO support: please consider it.

Will work on the new pcb with ISO support, split spacebar and split backspace.
