Little Bee is part of the Microchip Get Launched design program.

ANAVI Macro Pad 2 is an open source, custom programmable, tiny 2% mechanical eyboard/keypad. Each of the keys allows you to reprogram and use it as macro keypad or even dedicated shortcut keys.

Getting started with ANAVI Macro Pad 2 is easy. It is powered by the advanced and yet easy-to-use Quantum Mechanical Keyboard (QMK) open source firmware. It works on Windows, macOS, and GNU/Linux distributions.

ANAVI Macro Pad 2 is the perfect fit for video conferencing applications. You can easily turn the camera or microphone on or off. Various keymaps are available, including for Zoom, Jitsi, Google Meet, and Git.

ANAVI Macro Pad 2 boosts your daily productivity by providing an amazing level of control with gorgeous light effects at your fingertips!

ANAVI Macro Pad 2 will be available in two do-it-yourself kits. The developer kit will not require any soldering, with just the enclosure to assemble. The maker kit will require soldering, but provides the opportunity to pick your own mechanical switches (compatible with the Cherry MX plate footprint), the color of 3 mm backlit LEDs, and the keycaps.
