Introducing Leeloo v2

Leeloo v2 has been designed from scratch—again.  Everything from the wiring schematic to its new case.  Leeloo v2 still keeps the column stagger that it's known for, along with its low profile design.

Features include:

  • Support for Kailh Low Profile Choc switches.
    • Version for Kailh Box and MX style switches (scheduled for Summer of 2023).
  • All switch locations are socketed.
  • Two socketed locations for rotary encoders.
  • The option to include 128x32 OLED Displays, or nice!view Displays.
  • Support for per-switch backlight LEDs and under glow LEDs.
    • However supported, not recommended for wireless builds.
  • Support for both 110mAh or 700mAh batteries.
  • Each build comes with a 3D printed case (White or Black with translucent base).

Multiple Form-factors

Leeloo v2 will have three different form-factors to choose from.  The column stagger will be consistent, along with the same 5 modifier keys: 4x6x5m, or 3x5x5m—a.k.a. Leeloo-Micro.

Wireless Ready

A couple of subtle features, but something that helps keep Leeloo v2 safe—along with your nice!view, or OLED displays from burn-in.

  • More convenient through hole pads to solder LiPo battery leads,
  • Alps Alpine on/off switch, to completely cut power to the microcontroller; and, 
  • a more accessible location for the on-off switch itself.
