Show off your open-source hardware flair with a super-classy, custom-made Open Source Hardware Gear Logo Etched Keycap. It’s made with a translucent/opaque plastic that is etched to create an elegant glow-through effect. Perfect to show your hacker/maker cred on your next mechanical keyboard project.
Snaps onto any Cherry MX or compatible switch. Since the logo is centered, you’ll get a glow whether you have north or south-facing switches. It’s R4 profile so will work nicely as a stand-alone key or at the top row of your keyboards.
Adafruit donates to and sponsors the Open Source Hardware Association and Open Hardware Summit, a portion of sales of these keycaps will go to the Open Source Hardware Association.

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.
