Macropad dump

Three macropad projects have been published recently: the VoidPad 9S1E by Tuxic, the POSpad by _vastrox_, and Bitdrive made a case for the Spin.

Well, there were much more macropads posted of course, but these three have open-source PCBs and/or cases:

VoidPad 9S1E

Voidworkspace aka Tuxic published his VoidPad 9S1E, along with a cool photolog.

(This revision has issues with the OLED screen but is completely functional otherwise.)

POSpad

_vastrox_ aka kb-elmo shared his POSpad, a 4-key / POS macropad. (POS means "Point Of Sale" in this case, like in cash register systems in supermarkets – these big keycaps are made for those systems.)

Finally finished my 3D printed POS pad. It has a custom USB-C PCB inside and can be configured for either four individual keys or the single big POS key – _vastrox_.

Spin

Bitdrive posted a making-of video of his stylish wooden case for Nicholas Junker's Spin macropad.
