Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

Looking for the files of Hide-key's Christmas ornament macropad, I saw two other projects in his Github repo: one of them being the Sunflower macropad published last month.

It's a seven key macropad inspired by the Banana (normal & split) and Corn keyboards, featuring a XIAO RP2040 controller. This time the switches are vanilla Kailh Chocs. The middle part conceals a low-profile EC12E2440301 rotary encoder.
