If you love to customize, why not level up your DIY keeb-makin’ skills and craft your own set of bespoke ‘caps with this keycap mold that has four “1U R4” (e.g. single square escape-key-like) molds and one 1.5U  Caps Lock Keycap Molds.

We recommend UV-curable resin, yes you’ll need a UV lamp, but it’s worth the investment: two-part resin is much messier and hard to cure if the temperature and humidity aren’t just right. Check out this video for a great little tutorial on how to DIY your own custom keycaps.

Once molded, the keycaps will fit on any Cherry MX-compatible keyswitch. Comes with one two-piece mold that has four 1U molds and one 1.5U mold.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
