Joe Scotto made a streamdeck: the ScottoDeck is handwired and diodeless.

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

The ScottoDeck is an 8-key macropad with two EC11 encoders designed by Joe Scotto for live streaming.

I recently started live streaming builds and stuff related to my projects on YouTube and was in need of a Streamdeck. Under no circumstances would I, the handwiring guy, be buying a Streamdeck so of course I made my own – Joe.

This board uses direct wiring so no diode matrix along with an RP2040 Pro Micro. It features 2 rotary encoders along with Vial support.


The author 3D printed the keycaps and case completely solid and added extra weights so it doesn’t move around easily.
