Keyboards & Input Devices
This project is launching soon.
Following the success of ANAVI Macro Pad 10 and based on feedback from the community, we present two new, small, fully programmable, open source mechanical keyboards: ANAVI Macro Pad 12 and ANAVI Arrows. Both are powered by the mighty Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller at the heart of the Seeed XIAO RP2040, which provides support for USB Type-C and runs KMK, an advanced but easy-to-use firmware written in CircuitPython.
Each of these two small mechanical keyboards can be customized to fit various various applications: video or audio editing, entertainment broadcasting, gaming, programming, etc. Boost your productivity with the precise control and helpful lighting effects they provide. Getting started is easy, and no soldering is required. Just connect the device to your Windows, MacOS, or GNU/Linux computer with a USB Type-C cable and you’re ready to go.
ANAVI Macro Pad 12 offers twelve fully programmable, hot-swappable, Gateron red mechanical switches with translucent keycaps. The black, gold-plated PCB features yellow backlighting under each key, RGB LED on front, and six WS2812B LEDs for under-lighting effects. The hot-swappable sockets allow you to change the mechanical switches easily, with no soldering required. The device has an I²C slot for adding peripherals, such as a mini OLED display, which is included in the kit.
ANAVI Arrows is a small, fully programmable mechanical keyboard. It is a great companion to a 40% or 60% keyboard on many occasions when you want to increase your productivity. The device has a single rotary encoder with a clickable switch, an RGB LED, and four Gateron red, linear, non-clicky mechanical switches with translucent keycaps and yellow LED backlighting under each key. The rotary encoder is fully programmable and can be turned left, turned right, or clicked. ANAVI Arrows features a black, gold-plated PCB with four WS2812B LEDs on the back for under-lighting effects. It has an I²C slot for adding peripherals, such as a mini OLED display, which is included in the kit.
ANAVI Macro Pad 12 and ANAVI Arrows are open hardware products designed with free and open source software. Their default open source firmware is KMK ("Clackety Keyboards Powered by Python"). Source code and schematics are available on GitHub. A comprehensive user manual will be provided.
All units will be made in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and packaged in recyclable, eco-friendly cardboard boxes.
