I am keeping a close eye on the new Atreus, but there is one point that
hesitant, perhaps you would know the answer to this.
The selling point of the Atreus for me is the posture with the keyboard on
the chair seat,
tilted upwards with the sides just slightly leaning on one's thighs.
With the new Atreus being noticeably smaller I wonder
if this posture still works well? Did you try using it in this way? Does it
Or is it harder to wedge it in place?
Regardless, thank you for making my favorite keyboard Phil (the original)!

I backed the new Keyboardio project as well!
I'm running Kaleidoscope on my original Atreus.
I just used avrdude to flash the experimental hex as described at
I love being able to store key maps in EEPROM and make changes without
flashing the firmware!
Thanks for another great keyboard,

Hey Phil- already on board for another Atreus as part of the kickstarter,
but would also love to put the new firmware on my existing board. The
flashing process in Chrysalis doesn’t seem to work for me, but I’m having
trouble finding details on how to manually build and flash the Kaleidoscope
firmware for the Atreus v1.
I found details on building and deploying to the Keyboardio model 1, but
the directory structure in the GitHub repo doesn’t suggest that would be
readily adapted to the Atreus. Are there any additional instructions
somewhere for the build and flash process for the Atreus v1?

By now probably some of you have already seen the news; I have been
collaborating with the good folks at Keyboardio on a new redesigned
Atreus, and we have launched a Kickstarter for it:
This new version is factory-produced and as such is significantly
cheaper than the DIY version I've been selling. (US$99 during the
campaign!) It has 44 keys and uses Cherry-compatible switches in
sockets, so they can be replaced without any soldering. It's also
noticeably smaller than the original Atreus.
If you've been on the fence about whether you could construct a kit, or
you've been thinking about picking up a second (maybe a clicky one to
complement your quiet one) now's a great chance.
1 - it's easier to install than the full compiler toolchain needed for
QMK, but it is an Electron app so it's heavier than it could be on
