More information

1. Button combination description:

  • Single button pressed, keyborad will output the first key value(letter button will output lower case form). E.g if "Q" was pressed, keyboard will output "q"(lower case).

  • Sym+key, keyborad will output the second key value. E.g if "Sym" was single pressed, then "Q" was pressed, the keyboard will output "{". If "Sym" was double clicked, then the keyboard will lock this function, all key pressed will output it's second key value.

  • Shift+key, if a letter button was pressed, it'll output upper case form. E.g if "Shift" was single pressed, then "Q" was pressed, the keyboard will output "Q". If "Shift" was double clicked, then the keyboard will lock this function, all letter key pressed will output it's upper case form.

  • Fn+key(custom function key combination), keyborad will output the third key value. You can custom what function the key pressed corresponds.

Almost a millimetre smaller than your standard credit card, and keys click are so satisfying ! I plan to slap a pi zero behind it and carry around in my wallet.
