Trackpoint Corne Choc
Trackpoint Corne Choc
The popular Corne from foostan, with an integrated trackpoint. The trackpoint is conveniently placed on top of the MCU, making it easily accessible with the index finger.
The base price includes a fully assembled and tested keyboard, including:
- Integrated trackpoint (details).
- Kailh switches of choice.
- USB C Pro Micros with low profile headers + sockets, flashed with stock QMK firmware with VIA.
- PCB color: black.
The following can be added for an additional charge:
- Controllers upgrade to Sea-Picro RP2040 (+$20).
- Hotswap sockets (+$10).
- MBK blank key caps (+$15), 40s legends (+$36). For dyed key caps, add this to your order.
- Acrylic bottom plate or 3d printed case (+$10). Colors for printed cases can be found on the Prusa store.
- TRRS cable (+$5).
This Corne uses choc spacing for keys, which is slightly more compact than the standard Corne Low Profile. See our other Cornes here.
I don't have the time, tools, or ability to solder up my own keyboard kit, and I always wanted one with built in mouse functionality, so when I found this site, I was blown away and immediately purchased a Corne Low profile with a trackpoint on the right. However I kept researching and ended up emailing multiple times to adjust my order,
He was super friendly the entire time and even offered helpful advice here and there to point me in the right direction, and ended up with a completely different setup. A Corne Choc with a trackpoint on the left, and different colored covers. Once I received the board, the service didn't end, through his discord, he helped me get QMK setup and running so I could reprogram things to my liking, and I am now happily programming away with a sleek and beautiful board, on a much cleaner desktop, having no experience with any of it prior! I highly recommend HolyKeebs!
Very happy with my first ergonomic keyboard! Also first time having clicky switches (choc whites) and low profile switches. The trackpoint works as expected; however, the mouse cursor would move very slightly on its own even if my finger is not touching it. It takes a minute or two after plugging in the keyboard before the keyboard would be responsive. The keyboard key mapping layout was really easy to program using the usevia.app GUI on a chrome browser. Would be nice if there are instructions about which USB-C to plug into because I got it wrong at first as a total noob. Thanks for making this keyboard for me! :)
Hi Ray! The trackpoint shouldn't move when not touched - it's possible the cover is pressing on it too strong, you can try removing it to see if that changes anything.
Regarding which port to connect to - we actually put a sticker inside the package to help with this, although I realize this can be missed. Glad you figured it out! ☺️
