« on: Thu, 21 January 2021, 10:14:14 »


The Knob Goblin is a multi-layout 5x4 macropad with dual pressable rotary encoders and OLED screen. This is offered as an unsoldered DIY kit. All sockets, diodes, controller, and OLED will need to be soldered by the end-user.

Please fill out the interest form linked below. GB information will follow shortly after I gather information from the form responses.
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/16Ndbq1YYsV5o_KgWV7SQGWM9N7YZ8qiIbiWXYL15v8Y/edit#responses

Features:
  • 2x pressable rotary encoders
  • Layout support for standard numpad or full ortho
  • PCB mount stab support for all 2u switches
  • OLED screen
  • Elite C or Pro Micro compatible
  • Fully socketed. The OLED, switches, encoders, and controller are all socketed. Mill max sockets for the switches and encoders, peel-a-way diode pin sockets for the controller and OLED.
  • QMK compatible
Kit Includes:
  • Top plate
  • PCB
  • Bottom Plate
  • Standoffs and screws
  • Diodes
  • Encoders and Knobs (aluminum)
  • Mill max and peel-a-way sockets
  • OLED
  • Pro Micro or Elite C
Pricing:
This will be offered in two options: a version with a pro micro controller for $40, and an Elite C version for $50. Based on input from the interest form, I may offer a handful of fully-soldered builds for an additional $30.

While I do love Knob Goblin, I have a stronger predilection for Goblin Knob.

Sorry for being late to the party, but can I get an acrylic case for this?
