The Unconventional Alice Layout

Step into a new dimension of typing comfort with the ergonomic Alice layout. The CIDOO ABM066 offers a uniquely contoured design that aligns with the natural positioning of your hands for enhanced ergonomics. The Alice layout offers a groundbreaking shift from traditional keyboard designs by providing a contoured, split layout that dramatically reduces the stress on your wrists and fingers. The shape is engineered to follow the natural curve of your hands as they rest on the keyboard, offering an intuitive and comfortable typing experience.

VIA-Programmable: Your Keyboard, Your Rules

Complementing its ergonomic design, the CIDOO ABM066 also boasts a robust VIA-programmable feature. This open-source software offers an intuitive interface for real-time customization without requiring any coding skills. From key remapping and layer configurations to RGB customization and macro creation, VIA turns your keyboard into a highly personalized device.

Triple Modes: Type-C Wired, Bluetooth 5.0 & 2.4GHz Available

The CIDOO ABM066 supports connection via Bluetooth or 2.4GHz for wireless connectivity, or with the included Type-C USB cable. With Bluetooth 5.0, it easily connects seamlessly with your devices within 10 meters. Equipped with an 8000mAh battery, the keyboard is also easily switched among the three modes for efficient multitasking and speedy performance.

South-facing LED RGB Backlight & Custom Silent Blue Switches

The CIDOO ABM066 features south-facing LED RGB backlights with different light effects. This is also perfect with the custom CIDOO Silent Blue switches which includes LED slot to fit the amazing RGB lights. What’s more, the switches are pre-lubed to increase the smooth sense. With the operating force of 37g and bottom force 45g, the linear switches are perfect on the keyboard to be easily pressed and shine-through.

Gasket mounted with Flex-cut PC Mounting Plate

The CIDOO ABM066 goes above and beyond by incorporating a gasket-mounted mechanism with a flex-cut PC (Polycarbonate) mounting plate. The ABM066 utilizes foam gaskets to cushion the interaction between the plate and the PCB. The result is a softer bottom-out and top-out feel, which reduces typing fatigue and offers a ‘bouncier’ experience compared to traditional tray or top mounts. With the flex-cut PC mounting plate, the keyboard enhances these inherent qualities by adding strategically-placed cuts to allow the plate to flex more when keys are pressed. This results in a feel that many describe as 'cloud-like' or 'cushioned,' providing not just a tactile but almost a 'floating' typing experience.

Great Budget Alice

This board is a great option if you are considering the layout but don't want to go all in.

My main problem with this board is that it is full plastic and taking it apart is a huge pain in the rear. But leaving the board stock with some gateron pro yellows, it sounds pretty good. Another thing to note is that the pcb and plate combo leaves for a pretty flimsy feeling construction, I noticed to put switches in I had to use an uncomfortable amount of force. I'd recommend to actually open it in order to support the pcb from the back while putting switches in.
Another option that is aluminum is the FinalKey Record, but it is about $40 more than the ABM066 and isn't wireless like this one.

With that being said, it's a pretty decent board and I don't regret getting this board at all.

Easy and fun!

This kit was really easy to work with, no problems with any of the switch sockets, added to VIA using the json file and changed the gif with the image custom tool. Been using the keyboard ever since I put it together and I can already feel a difference in my shoulders from the change in my hand positions while typing.
