We received a lot of positive feedback about ANAVI Macro Pad 8 and great ideas from the community. Based on the recommendations of several backers a new option has been recently added. Now you can order a maker kit with an extra add-on: Gateron red mechanical switches, translucent keycaps and 3mm red LEDs.
Basically with this optional add-on, you can get the same parts as in the developer kit, but not soldered. In some use cases, having all the parts in one package is a convenient option for advanced users with soldering skills. This way they don’t need to purchase separately the keycaps, the LEDs and the switches. Furthermore, they can still make advanced modifications before using them with ANAVI Macro Pad 8.
As part of the stretch goals that the crowdfunding campaign has already met, all kits will include 32 transparent Emoji stickers to customize further the keycaps.
Of course, for anyone who wants to skip the soldering steps, we recommend the developer kit of ANAVI Macro Pad 8. It allows you to easily add the keycaps, the acrylic enclosure and the mini OLED display with your bare hands.
ANAVI Macro Pad 8 is an entirely open source product and community always matters most. Thank you for the support and for sharing all these great ideas for improvements!
