8-Key DIY Macropad Kit

Whether you spend your time gaming, Photoshopping, or using any hotkey-intensive software, the Max Falcon-8 programmable mini macropad—a DIY kit that requires soldering—promises to simplify the process. Aside from the tools themselves, it comes with everything you’ll need to build the eight-key pad at home. Or, for a nominal fee, you can order the pad pre-assembled. Features of the Max Falcon-8 include 32k onboard memory, USB six-key rollover, nine-level backlight mode, and individually backlit keys. Equipped with a USB port, it works with Windows, Mac, and Linux. By default, the macropad comes pre-programmed with eight media keys.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have a number of choices to customize your macropad, including mechanical switch type and keycap color, as well as the option to add a backlit multimedia control key pack (+ $8), and the option to order it pre-assembled (+ $5). This drop is limited to 500 units.
