After last week's DragonFruit keyboard, Protieusz is already back with the OmegaSupreme trackball module with on-board components, and the Starship Bubu-01 standalone trackball unit built around that module.

This is called the Starship Bubu-01 prototype, a working concept prototype of a solo trackball using my OmegaSupreme module that was inspired by Ariamelon's Kiwano VIK module and jfedor2's RP2040 & PMW3360 module that contains the integrated RP2040 components with PER56 encoder, PMW3360 sensor integrated into the all-in-one PCB unit – Protieusz.
