Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Hide-key's (Hideki Nakamura) name may sound familiar from some cool but closed source low profile ortho projects with X switches,

This time he published a macropad in the shape of a Christmas ornament.

A keypad that imitates Christmas ornaments. But, in terms of keymap, it's not a keyboard anymore💦 However, since it supports Remap, the keymap can be changed freely. Switches and keycaps use X Switch, and MCU uses XIAO RP2040. MERRY CHRISTMASğŸŽ„âœ¨ – hide-key.
