Seeed Fusion DIY XIAO Mechanical Keyboard Contest to Win $1000 Coupons & Seeed XIAO Pillows in Prizes

Seeed is coming up with a contest about its product DIY XIAO Mechanical Keyboard to Win $1000 Coupons & Seeed XIAO Pillows in Prizes. This is big news for Electronics/IoT enthusiast and Students or Developers.

DIY XIAO Mechanical Keyboard

First let’s talk about its product DIY XIAO Mechanical Keyboard. As you know, The humble keyboard is the most used tool in the life of an ever increasing number of people: not just writers, journalists, software developers, bloggers, gamers, etc. But the standard keyboard is based on an almost 150-year-old design. We can do better. There have always been tinkerers who tried to think outside the box, fought path dependency, and created their own keyboards (and even custom typewriters by the way).

Meanwhile, to encourage more individual keyboard designers and business users to customize their mechanical keyboards, Seeed Studio Fusion has launched the DIY XIAO Mechanical Keyboard Contest based on the Xiao series.

Why Seeed Studio XIAO Series are perfect for building keyboards?

  • Native USB, support tinyUSB for keyboard control

  • Ultra-small size (21 x 17.5mm) & Super cost-effective, 5 to 10 USD with powerful MCU core
  • Single-sided components and SMD surface mounting design for easy adhesion to PCB backboard, helping to speed up your product mass production
