The function of the encoder and keys can be customised using QMK.

would you consider adding regular full size usb ports instead of usb c? probably more useful for things like usb drives and some such.

I agree with this actually. Having just usb-c means I'm attaching a dongle to this and it's getting ugly. Where alternatively this could be a pretty awesome usb-a hub. Many peripherals still end in usb-a. And most keyboard cables do as well (because besides MacBooks most PCs are still usb-c limited).

I may still consider this purely for it's macropad capabilities. But at that point I'd say cut the extra ports and save me some money. No ports or usb-a ports def makes the most sense.

No, the formatting doesn't work. We tried posting but the text either the text is really small with no paragraphs or really large with no paragraphs. This has been happening a lot recently, we don't know why.

No, sorry this is because we want the product to be future-proof. We also have other plans etc. that this macro pad would work well with.   We are looking at offering short USB-C to A cables as an optional extra.

Love the idea. Definitely interested.

For the USB hub, does it matter which one will be the "master" output port to your computer and which ones will be for your devices?

Yeah, I used to understand this, back when i thought USB-C was right around the corner on peripherals, but it's not, and doesn't look like it's going to be, for a while. By then you'll probably have R2/R3 of this coming out. LoL.

That said, with addon adapters I may still be interested, but it'll mess with the look for sure. Will follow along though.

Is there room for a weight inside? I'd be a bit concerned about cables pulling the back down, lifting the front. A port in front might be nice.

Looking like a nifty little pad!

This thing looks beautiful. With the proper resistance on the dial it could be glorious.

Any info on charging speeds and data bandwidth with these USB-C pass-throughs?

Is there any way to machine the USB-C port holes in the back to better fit the ports? Right now it looks like they were meant for USB-A, with a lot of space around the ports.

Could just do a passthrough, but then you've still got to worry about noise and you've added another host cable.

Yeah power is more limited with C2.0 but I've never seen issues with file transfer in my testing of C2.0 to C2.0 cables.
