Iris Rev. 6 Keyboard - Hotswap PCBs for Split Ergonomic Keyboard

$64.99 $64.99 Sale Save

The Iris keyboard, a split ergonomic keyboard with 4x6 vertically staggered keys and up to 4 thumb keys. Time to stop stretching your thumbs out on the Ergodox!

Status: The Rev. 6 is currently out-of-stock and has been replaced with the Iris Rev. 8.


    Each half of the board is a 4x6 matrix with the same vertical stagger as the Ergodox and with 2-4 thumb keys. Alternatively, a rotary encoder can be placed at the upper thumb key of each half.

    Many thanks to Lewis Ridden (/u/GAMING_FACE) for coming up with this design.

    • On-board ATmega32u4 controller
    • Switch support: MX-compatible only
    • USB-C port
    • 6 RGB underglow LEDs per half (12 total)
    • Per-key RGB LEDs
    • Option for rotary encoders at upper thumb key on each half
    • Pre-flashed with QMK Firmware and VIA configurator support
    • Left half PCB
    • Right half PCB

    This keyboard uses the popular open-source QMK Firmware with VIA enabled out of the box to allow you to remap all the keys just the way you want them.

    Plug your keyboard in, open up the VIA app, and easily change what each key does to get the most out of your keyboard with your customizations! More info on what you can do here: VIA Usage Guide

    The rotary encoder pins are not hotswapped, so encoders need to be soldered in if installing them.

    About Rev. 6.1 PCBs: Only difference between Rev. 6 and 6.1 is that encoder side legs no longer need to be clipped off if installing encoders.

    Lights were strong, but some had some color issues, but no biggie still looked great


    I’m still trying to refine my layers, but the order was shipped very fast and the product is stellar


    Really enjoying this so far! Assembly was easy, although one of the standoffs striped out. They give you extra screws which is a plus. Also, the orientation of the thumb switches makes it awkward to use cherry profile (or similar) keycaps unless they’re flipped upside down. Switching to XDA keycaps makes this a moot point.


    They were helpful with the order and everything arrived as powered. Love the keyboard although there is a learning curve it's the best board I've ever used.
