This project by AnonymouSmst here at Hackaday.io is both a beast and a beauty! Given how rewarding it is to look at I can only imagine how pleasing it is to use, to not only type on but use to manage other interactions with the world through a keyboard controller. One word: want.
As a matter of fact, people nowadays can easily spend >10 hours a day in front of a computer; wiggling the mouse, click and clacking the keyboard, those things are just inseparable part of our modern life. HID such as keyboard has simply become an integral part of the society and also our primary window to the digital world. Only little we realize that the device that we rigorously use daily hasn’t changed much, remains ‘dumb’ as it was first invented. With more and more freaking-tasks often need to be handled simultaneously, we still rely heavily on our lazy-brain telling our hand to type here & there. We often end up inputting the same damn-password so many times because most of those safe-secure password keeper are just too complicated to startup. No matter what we are doing, what’s happening in the surrounding, how late you are staying up the night, our keyboard remains the way it always is, doesn’t help a thing and I’M GETTING SICK OF IT!
Bluefruit EZ-Key – 12 Input Bluetooth HID Keyboard Controller – v1.2: Create your own wireless Bluetooth keyboard controller in an hour with the Bluefruit EZ-Key: it’s the fastest, easiest and bestest Bluetooth controller. We spent years learning how to develop our own custom Bluetooth firmware, and coupled with our own BT module hardware, we’ve created the most Maker-friendly wireless you can get! Read more.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
