Mechanical, universal keyboard with 16 buttons in a 4x4 layout and LED backlight for each button. The module is based on the RP2040 microcontroller known from the popular Raspberry Pi Pico boards. It is powered and programmed with a USB type C connector using the CircuitPython language. The design of the keyboard is based on linear Kailh Speed buttons, which ensure fully smooth movement and not too loud work. Thanks to this, it is characterized by high reliability, and the transparent keycaps and LED backlight give the keyboard an amazing look. It works well as an addition to the support of popular programs for streaming, graphic processing or for pasting frequently used text or code fragments. Documentation with a library and examples in Python is available in the GitHub repository.
