  • USB-C connector
  • STM32F303CBT ARM mcu
  • 2x IS31FL3731 - drive up to 58 per key RGB driven by depending on how you do the matrix
  • QWIIC port for I2C connection between two halves

I was going to go with Hardlight, since I cant imagine the fresh hell of hand wiring a full per key RGB keyboard heh.

For some reason I have dogs on my mind, so I’m gonna call this one the PupperPad :dog:

So it has 6 switches, I notice Boston on it, Massachusetts is famous for firearms manufacturing, so I why not something like, “Revolver” (good enough for a Beatles album), “Springfield” (home of Smith and Wesson) or “Volcanic” (Name of the first firearm they produced, although the volcanic pistol did hold 7 rounds)
