When you have a key-festooned unit called a MACROPAD, it’s only natural that one of the first things to try would be application hotkeys or macros. Anything less would be like a dinosaur tour without any dinosaurs!
Press one of MACROPAD’s 12 keys to send a shortcut, function key or whole sequence of keystrokes to a connected computer. The OLED display provides a map, while LEDs under each key offer color-coded groups or themes. Turn the dial to select among different application sets.
This is one of those projects that you can simply find everyday use for as-is, or peer inside the code to see how CircuitPython makes this all pretty simple. Additionally, hotkey configuration files for different desktop applications are easily created, modified and shared.
You can buy a kit with all the parts with Kailh Red keys and clear keycaps or build your own custom configuration:
