I'd just like to clarify at the beginning here that the keypads are not ordered numerically. They go in this order, from least to most features:

Basic: A simple 2-key keypad with a polling rate of 125hz.

Basic+: A simple 2-key keypad with a side button for pausing your game with a polling rate of 125hz (side button is remappable.)

v2.1: Same as the basic+ but with white LEDs with 5 different LED modes. It also has a polling rate of 1000hz instead of 125hz like the cheaper models.

RGB (1.1): Same as the v2.1 but with RGB lighting instead of white.


The .x is the revision number so you know what code to use on my website. You can check out and compare the LED modes between the two models from this page here: [link]

The shop will be down indefinitely. Just trying to work out some life stuff and I don't have a whole lot of time to work on keypads. I do hope to have it up soon though, hoping within the next week.

I've said I was interested in doing this in the past, but I think it's just too much work for me with the way things are set up. Not within the near future.

Sorry, I know it's way past labor day now. I'll update the thread and the shop page.

So have you ever shipped one of these to Argentina? My country is kind of f*ked up when it comes to receiving products from the outside....

Hello everyone!

I'm sorry for such a long break between updates (and to anyone who's been waiting for a PM reply here on the forum.)

The reason I started making these is because I wanted one and nobody was selling them. I put the time in to make my own and I thought it would be cool to share them with everyone. I had no plans for mass producing them or making any real money, but I did have cooler projects in mind for the future (like what is now the v2.1 and RGB.) Since I finished the RGB two things have happened. I haven't had any new keypad ideas that i thought were worth doing (things adding more keys and adding LED effects to the RGB) and I would spend 4-8 hours a day on orders. I only actually decided to sell these because I thought they were fun to make and make better, but it's hit the point where I'm just fulfilling orders and I don't have any time to develop anything anymore. This is why I've taken such a long break.

I still don't plan on stopping right away though. I have a lot of parts left over that I'd at least like to clear out first. I'm hoping to have the shop back up within the next week for what might be my last batch, though I'm not sure. Maybe I'll feel different after this one. I'll still be happy to help anyone with their potential problems or questions for modifications and such.

I really would like to thank everyone here from the forum for their tremendous support. I never thought that I'd ever hit 400 sales within 6 months and I couldn't have done it without you guys. I'm happy I got to make something that so many of you got to use and enjoy so thank you.

I'd also like to thank everyone for telling me that they're interested via email, youtube, the forum, etsy, and anywhere else.

The switches themselves are pcb-mount but they're closer to plate-mounted. If you wanted to replace the switches, all you should need is your switches, a soldering iron, and a hot glue gun. Since you'd need a soldering iron to remove pcb-mounted switches, I can't imagine you'd run into any problems ;)

It's not ideal for me to be gluing the switches in, but hot glue is VERY easy to remove with a little bit of rubbing alcohol and a hot glue gun only costs ~$2.50 at most craft stores, so I'd rather have them solid on the unit than try to cut my cases with machine precision (by hand,) especially considering how easy it is to replace.

I hope I get into the last batch. Thanks for doing what you've been doing :)

UPDATE 10/12/2015

Okay guys, the shop is back up. I've decided on a few things:

1) This probably won't be the last batch, so you shouldn't have to worry about getting in. My stock of everything is uneven and I'd like to get rid of everything on the last batch, so I'll probably have another 1-3 after this one.

2) International shipping has increased to $15 and Canadian shipping has increased to $10. I'm sorry about this, but I was losing $2.50 on shipping per order before (for months, almost half a year) and I had to bump it up.

3) Not immediately, but I might just aim for selling 20-25 a week and then take the shop down until the next week to avoid getting overwhelmed. We'll see how it goes for now.

Also, my website has been updated to be a little less ugly and I added a little bit of information. If you'd like to preview the lighting effects, reprogram your keypad, clean the tape on your keypad, or see a short FAQ, please check it out: [link]

I do ship to Belgium.

The port in the picture is mini-USB but the port depends on the model. The basic and basic+ use mini and the v2.1 and RGB use micro. This cannot be changed because they're attached to the microcontroller.

A feature list for the models can be found here and all of the led modes for the v2.1 and RGB can be seen here by clicking on the model you want to see.

The RGB is out of stock right now but I'm hoping to have it back up by around mid-next week.

Thank you guys! :)

Edit: I've changed the way white cases worked from this point on. You have to request a white case on whatever model you choose and if I run out of black cases I'll list the white models. This is for easier stock management since etsy isn't flexible enough.

Got some Zelios today in the mail and decided to see how they would be on a classic V1 Keypad

I've only got to gluing them on the base, but once i get some solder going I can share some impressions on both the switch and gameplay in osu.
May plan on getting a RGB keypad to see how they'd look with the clear housing.

Hey, thanks for your answer.

, I mean the size of the keypad. Not the port. :D
Dunno if it's mention anywhere, I didn't see it.
