The keyboard, reimagined

Portable Mechanical Customizable Backlit
Planck EZ Keyboard

47 keys is all you’re going to need

What if we could make the simplest keyboard imaginable, while still packing all the power that’s behind the ErgoDox EZ? A keyboard that can change as your typing habits change, that comes with lights and change-it-yourself mechanical keyswitches, and that’s a joy to travel with?

Meet the Planck EZ.

Plug it in and go

No matter where you land, the Planck EZ takes seconds to set up. Pull it out, plug it in, and you’re in business. You don’t even need a desk: It’s small enough to rest on top of your laptop keyboard.

Using it is a snap too: The design requires minimal finger and wrist movement. Every key is within easy reach.

Classic

If we asked you to close your eyes and draw a keyboard from memory, you’d probably end up with something that’s remarkably close to the Planck EZ.

The Planck EZ takes that archetypal notion of what a keyboard is, and shrinks it down to its compact and powerful essentials: Small, but mighty.

Ortholinear

Jack Humbert, the creator of the original Planck, took the notion of ortholinear keyboards and made it wildly popular among the tight-knit community of keyboard enthusiasts.

Ortholinear keyboards are popular because they work: Having a grid of keys minimizes finger movement and can help when learning the layout.

“The Planck EZ is the mature, warranty-backed iteration of an idea that started as a group-buy for two metal plates back in 2014 — it's everything I've been wanting to put into the Planck and more.”

— Jack Humbert, OLKB, creator of the Planck

Floating keyswitches over a thin base

The Planck EZ celebrates the mechanical switches that power your every keystroke. They’re firmly mounted within a supportive framework, but the top half of each keyswitch floats over the board, there for all to see.

Change it yourself

Gain ultimate control over your hardware: Change any keyswitch on your Planck EZ, at any time, without soldering and without voiding the warranty. Your keyboard, your switches, your way.

Change any keyswitch

A wide selection

Should your keyboard be clicky, or whisper-quiet? Are you an energetic typist, or do your fingers effortlessly glide over the keys, barely touching as you commit your ideas to writing?

No matter your personal typing style, we’ve got the perfect keyswitch to support it. Pick what works for you.

This board talks back

The Planck EZ incorporates two bright status LEDs, as well as a buzzer that can play Gameboy-style chiptunes. Of course, you can also keep it completely silent (but where’s the fun in that?).

Uncompromised 2-year warranty
No fine print

Two-year warranty

We proudly offer a two-year, no-BS, no fine-print warranty on our keyboards. No complicated forms to fill out or hoops to jump through: Just email us and we'll see it right.

User friendly Graphical Configurator
Point and click

Graphical Configurator

A big part of what makes a keyboard ergonomic is making it work for you. Our powerful configurator allows you to change virtually anything about the keyboard, save your layouts, and iterate on them to create your very own perfect keyboard.

Source Code in GitHub
Hack on it

Open Source

The powerful firmware that runs on your Planck EZ is called QMK and it's open-source, available on GitHub. While you can use the configurator to quickly put together a layout, having complete access to the firmware source code means you can dig as deep as you'd like.

Full Control Up to 32 layers
Full Control

Up to 32 layers

Need easy access to your F-keys? Want a mechanical numpad? Need programmer-friendly symbols right on your home row? With multiple layers, all of this becomes trivial. It's like a Shift key on steroids.

More with less Dual-function Keys
A fourth dimension

Dual-function Keys

Tap your Z key, and it sends the letter Z as expected. Press and hold it down... and it becomes Alt. That is the power of dual-function keys: When tapped, they send a character. When held, they act as a modifier. Alt, Ctrl and friends have never been easier to reach.

Use the keyboard only Mouse Control

Mouse Control

Never take your hands off the keyboard. The Planck EZ can emulate a mouse, allowing you to control your cursor, scrollwheel and mouse buttons quickly and effectively.
