I had so much fun building these. I added some RBG underglow with the ws2812b strips and made a custom case. I had to order even more because my coworkers now all want me to make them some to use as media controls or in Photoshop.
I would love to see some per-key rgb lighting in an update if there are plans for that sort of thing. Maybe with some SMDs and cutouts per key (instead of through hole single color leds). May not be possible with the
I'm planning to build an arcade cabinet and I didn't want to use the off-the-shelf USB arcade controllers. Instead I wanted a little more customization and control over what I was building. Using the Arduino Pro Micro (clone), and the code here: https://github.com/MHeironimus/ArduinoJoystickLibrary I was able to create exactly what I wanted. And this little breakout board with screw terminals is perfect for my application. I ordered the fully assembled boards (2) and received both the fully assembled v0.6 and the bare board v0.5 boards (as a surprise bonus). Great price, nice design. Very happy with my purchase!
