Proof of Concept: Pay Respect

Jordan Majd · November 8, 2019

I’ve wanted to design a bluetooth mechanical keyboard for a while; wasn’t sure how realistic it would be. Figured a 1 key prototype would be a good jumping off point. Still has a lot of work to be done, but it works.

PoC Features

  • USB C
  • BLE 5.0
  • Long lasting LIPO battery
  • Wireless Qi charging
  • Kailh Gold Speed switch
  • ffffff

Roadmap

I’m still assessing the long term goals of this project, but in the short run it is time to iterate:

  • Add resistors to reduce interference.
  • Refine debouncing logic.
  • Open source.
  • Automatically reconnect after disconnect.
  • Sleep when not in use.
  • Add battery reporting BT service.
  • Add support for more than one key.
