  • this is great! whats the power input? same as the arduinos i assume, can it take 12vdc?

  • transmitter is built in with the option for a cable output

  • ehhh… just received it an never-mind..
    may be you could grab an on-off-on from another manufacturer…
    the whole assembly feels like in will break before you even push the key in.. doesn’t matter which direction the key goes in, there are no pins in the cylinder, its really just a rotary switch with a little slot in front. clearly a novelty.

  • 500mm is a smidge under 20" for people like me who are to lazy to do the math.
    I believe it would be around 19.64

  • Hey I have a question about this nifty litte usb key,
    A quick search of HID on sfe turned these up, and I don’t know much about I2c, Vusb, etc. But what I’m looking to do is emulate a keyboard in several win/mac machines… Such that I could send a serial string to something in the usb port of each computer and it would appear on the computer as if it had been typed.
    Possible with this? Love the form factor/price

  • just ordered one to throw into a automation/control panel fro the tv studio at my school. looks great, and there are some other cool looking models in the datasheet, especially the on-off-on options, maybe if these do well ya’ll could find some more?
    I can find keyswitches at other places for $6-8 but at less than $1 this is a steal.

  • the cable is 1.8m or about 6ft long
