I’ve recently got hold of a Perixx Bluetooth keyboard (Model 804) which I plan to use with my tablet for typing and future Raspberry Pi projects. I chose the Perixx 804 as it uses a UK keyboard layout. The black version is a standard PC layout (” on the 2 key) whereas the silver version uses an Apple style layout (@ on the 2 key).
This tutorial will explain how to pair this with your Raspberry Pi. While developing this tutorial I used the black version with the PC-style UK layout as this is the layout I use everyday on my other devices. The process will probably work for any Bluetooth keyboard so feel free to try it out if you’ve already got a device you want to use.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
