Dress up the mechanical keys in your keyboard or NeoKey project with this add-on 24-pack of Black Pudding Key Caps.
These keycaps are designed with a milky translucent dual-layer that lets gorgeous NeoPixels glow through. They come in assorted profiles and lengths, allowing you to populate your keyboard/keypad project like mini theatre stadium seating.
These keycaps are a great way to add labeled and glowy keys to a macropad – however, they are designed for a keyboard with a tilted profile to the keys, so not all keys have the same profile. We found that with a little flexibility, a macropad can be laid out so that the keys have similar profiling along each row, check the isometric photos to see the angles for each ‘row’
Add-on Kit includes:
7 x R4 keycaps (Pn, Ins, Del, ScrLk, PrtSc, Pause, Home)
1 x R3 keycap (PgUp)
1 x R2 keycap (PgDn)
10 x R1 keycaps (End, Up Arrow, Down Arrow, Left Arrow, Right Arrow, Alt, Fn, 0, Windows, Ctrl)
1 x 1U keycap (Shift)
2 x 1.25 1U keycap (Pn and Shift)
1 x 1.75 1U keycap (Shift)
1 x 2U keycap (Shift)
Snap ’em onto any Cherry MX or compatible switch to turn your Feather or breakout into a slick tuxedo-like macro keypad.
Note: This product is just a pack of 24 keycaps. Key switches are not included!
