A hotswap, gasket mounted and brick-compatible numpad with multiple layouts supported, which you can stick to your original 60% Adam kit or palm rest upgrade – or integrate into your LEGO Millennium Falcon, Harry Potter castle or Frozen palace – in various ways? Addams by KBDcraft offers exactly this experience.

If you've been following the story of KBDcraft and the extremely popular Adam kit (featured also here), you may recall that BoyU had plans to release 12 models named after the angels in the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime. However, he's made some adjustments to the order of releases, and the latest model is Addams, who happens to be Adam's offspring and inherits his design style which is both minimalist and monochromatic.

We have developed Project 0110, which is a demonstration of modularity. Within this technical framework, we've created communicable PCBs and merging kits that will be released in a few days to assist players in creating personalized layouts with Addams – BoyU.

Kit Addams is a numpad and, according to the designer, the perfect accessory for laptops. It's also a 20% module, which means it can create various custom layouts with the original 60% Adam by merely reconstructing the brick cases.

Price & Availability

The Addams kit is already available at kbdcraft. The base kit costs $25, while the full kit (with switches and keycaps) is $40.

Update

BoyU was kind enough to send me a sample of the Addams. It's a cool little gadget, and I really enjoyed building it. Uploaded a gallery with some pics to imgur.
