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

Published last month, the Snowflake is a 13-key macropad designed by @takashicompany. (I mentioned this project last week without being aware that it has a GitHub repo. Thanks for the heads up!)



  • 13 keys
  • MX, soldered
  • XIAO RP2040 controller
  • KMK


Maybe it's just me, but the Snowflake reminds me of projects like Jerre's Christmas ball ornament or Hideki's Christmas ornament.


Repo with Gerbers and firmware:
