Chiwi60

This is the first-ever keyboard design that I worked on which was in collaboration with Doyu Studio who provided the CAD modelling and ran the group buy.

The name comes from a slang term used in New Zealand which is short for Chinese Kiwi (Chinese New Zealander).

The keyboard aimed to be low cost but feature-rich and utilised the DO60 PCB by Doyu Studio which provided a myriad of layout options and RGB under-glow and was one of the first few 60% layout PCBs which used USB-C at the time.
