Sure, you have a keyboard. Maybe it’s wireless. Maybe it’s even Bluetooth. But do you have a mini Bluetooth keyboard? Like Halloween candy, this keyboard is fun-size! If Shakespeare had this wee chiclet keyboard back in the day, he definitely would’ve remarked, “And though it be but little, it is fierce!” We got one of these with a DIY ‘tele-prompter’ kit and thought it would be great for little Raspberry Pi projects.
Packed with Bluetooth V3.0, you can pair it with a variety of devices including Raspberry Pi, PC, smartphone, tablet, and even some gaming consoles! The super slim lil’ keyboard boasts a range of 10m, giving you more wireless freedom.
Measuring at 115mm x 60mm x 8.6mm (4.5″ x 2.4″ x 0.3″), it works comfortably for folks with smaller hands. The first time you use it, we recommend plugging it in to charge, which takes at least two hours. Afterwards, you’ve got a wireless typing interface for your project!

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.
