Because when you extend a finger, it doesn‘t go sideways.

Columnar keyboards like the ErgoDox EZ and the Moonlander make it easier to reach above and below the home row. Stretch less, type more.

Moonlander: unpowered left side
Moonlander: Powered left side

Active left side

The Moonlander has its USB Type-C connector on the left side, so you can use that side on its own.

When it‘s time to get your game on, unplug the right side and give your mouse some room to roam. The left side acts as a powerful macro pad.

The Platform

An optional tenting accessory like no other: All-metal, slides, locks, and folds in seconds.

The Platform’s sophisticated latching system allows you to quickly disengage it and stow it away, flat, along with the Moonlander in the Moonlander’s carrying case.

Blank or printed

The Moonlander comes with high-quality keycaps made of doubleshot PBT plastic. You can get them either with letters ("printed"), or just lines for the light to shine through ("blank").

The printed keycaps are all the same profile so you can use them as-is or move them around for different non-QWERTY layouts.

The blank keycaps are sculpted, so each row has a different profile for added typing comfort.

When in doubt, go with the printed caps; they're easier to start with.



In a mechanical keyboard, each keypress is crisp and distinct. Different keyswitches offer a dramatically different typing feel.

When building out your new Moonlander, choose between ten different types of switches. If you're not sure which is right for you, we'll help you choose.

Fully backlit forPhotoshopWriting

The Moonlander is fully backlit, with programmable RGB LEDs under each key.

Use them to light up the active keys on your current layer, remember shortcuts, and more.

Switch to Photoshop, and the "Photoshop" layer on your ZSA keyboard automatically activates. Click into Fortnite, and now your "Game" layer is suddenly active.

Lots of LED animations

While the Moonlander excels at the ergonomics of productivity, it also knows how to party. For those of you who enjoy watching LEDs dance, we made a little video showcasing some of the Mooonlander’s moves.

Modules that work

The thumb module tilts up and down. Use it to find the perfect typing angle, and the wrist support module will automatically follow.

That’s a very smooth touchdown.

Thumb module

Thumb module

For small hands, tilt the thumb module up. For bigger hands, tilt it down.

A custom fit for your hand size.

The Launch and Any keys

You‘ll never have to hunt for these. Use them for things you do several times a day and that usually take multiple keypresses.

Switch your input locale or launch your password manager with a single tap of your index finger.

The Piano keys

The piano keys

We designed these three easy-to-reach keys exclusively for the Moonlander, with a vertical profile and a dedicated backlight slot on each key.

Wing module

Wrist support module

Also known as the Wing, this is a comfy landing spot for your palm.

It automatically angles when you tent and tilt the keyboard, so it‘ll always be where you expect it.

Prefer typing without wrist support? The module is easy to detach, no tools needed.

It fits you

No matter what size hands you have, the Moonlander's Thumb and Wing modules can be adjusted to accommodate you perfectly.

A fully-customizable typing experience


Make your keyboard work just like you want it

You don't have to code to customize the Moonlander. Oryx is a free, simple, and powerful keyboard layout editor. Point-and-click your way to the ultimate in comfort and productivity.

Remap any key

Don't like where something is? Move it. All keys can be remapped and reassigned, and most people iterate over their layouts until they're just right.

Firmware: Key AFirmware: Key Ctrl

Tap for A, hold for Ctrl

One key can do two, three, or even four things. Tap-dance and dual-function keys make it easy to hold a key for Ctrl (for example) and tap it to get the letter “A”. All the power you need, within easy reach.


One-touch shortcuts

Want to set up a single key to send Cmd+S? Easy peasy.


Works with Mac, Linux, and Windows

All the “smarts” live on the board. No software or drivers required.


Unlock the power of system-wide hotkeys

Hyper is Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Win/Cmd, while Meh is Ctrl+Shift+Alt. No sane application on your machine uses these, which means you get free system-wide shortcuts.

Space-cadet Shift

Use your Shift key for more. Press and hold it, and it acts as Shift. Tap it on its own, and it sends parentheses — open parens on the Left Shift, close parens on the Right Shift.

This feature not enabled by default but is trivial to enable using Oryx.

Firmware: Multiple Layers

Use multiple layers

With up to 32 layers, you can make a layer dedicated to your favorite game or app and get single-key access to helpful combos and shortcuts.

Master your layout easily with Live Training

Using just your browser (no need to download anything), Live Training allows you to practice your custom layout until it becomes second nature.


Visualize your layout

Oryx's Live View allows you to see what every key does, in every layer. Switch a layer, and the keymap on your screen updates in real time. This dynamic legend represents your keyboard without you ever having to look down.


Open-source firmware

The powerful firmware that runs on the Moonlander is called QMK, and it’s open-source, available on GitHub.

While you can use our 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.

A thriving community

With thousands of people using our keyboards for all sorts of interesting things, there is never a lack of layouts to learn from. Some people even create layout tours to explain things better.
