LeafCutterLabs is selling the bigKNOB, a custom programmable macropad keypad, on Etsy.
Want more tactility in your computer experience? Add some dedicated knobs/buttons to your favorite programs and increase productivity.
I designed the bigKNOB as separate controls for media/Spotify (volume/mute, play/pause, next, stop, etc) but the bigKNOB is helpful for Photoshop (brush size, undue, effects), Blender (camera controls), Adobe CC, macros for games, even a midi controller.
*Upgraded* 1.2mm matte black powder coated steel case
32mm solid aluminum knob with 360 degree 6mm shaft encoder
Updated design with hot swaps, able to replace the switches with most Cherry MX compatible switches.
RGB key backlight
QMK firmware support (https://qmk.fm/)
USB-C port (cable not included)
The project is documented on GitHub. See more on Etsy.
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.
