Glow up for keyboards! Pimoroni’s Keybow is a solderless mini mechanical keyboard with super satisfying high-quality clicky switches. The per-key RGB lighting shines brilliantly through the clear DSA-profile key caps, so you get all the incredible LED colors while clickety-clacking away at your coding, hotkey-ing, etc!
Keybow is an easy-to-build, solderless, DIY mini mechanical keyboard. It’s Raspberry Pi-powered, with twelve illuminated keys, hot-swap linear (soft) switches, clear keycaps, and awesome customisable layouts and macros. It’s the ultimate macro pad.
This kit has (just about) everything you need — microSD card not included but that’s it. You can now build your own mini mechanical keyboard. It’s a fun, affordable, first step into the world of mechanical keyboards, with high-quality linear (Silver) Kailh Speed switches and clear DSA-profile key caps that look incredible when lit up with the per-key RGB lighting. The fancy hot-swap Kailh sockets mean that there’s absolutely no soldering required!
