Getting Started

Our Lily58 Wireless is made to make the perfect wireless keyboard. We made the following major changes to the Lily58:

  • Power Switch: Turn off your board when traveling or when not in use
  • JST Jack: Easily and safely install your batteries
  • nice!view Support: Install your nice!view directly without a bodge wire
  • Partially Assembled: No need to solder the hotswap sockets, diodes, reset button, power switch, or JST jack
  • Choc PCB: Our Choc PCB is using Choc spacing, which makes it more compact than usual

You can customize your wireless in 3D Lily58 at the keyboard customizer.

Build Videos

Each of the steps on the following pages has a short video tutorial, or you can watch one of the two full build videos below.

There's a concise video made by Joe Scotto that goes over the entire build process. It's a great resource if you're looking for a quick overview of the build process.

If you would like a longer form video with extra commentary, we have a build stream as well for the Corne, which is similar.
