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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
