Arduino based Developer's Dream Keyboard


I started by thinking about how to change the keyboard layout, and finished with this!

 The Arduino Micro development board is an ideal candidate for this purpose, because it features the ATmega32U4 microcontroller - an AVR microcrontroller and the same processor that is the brains of the UHK.

The Arduino Micro board was the basis for building my keyboard for developers.
A full-sized 104-key keyboard could have 18 rows and 6 columns but we’ll simply have a humble 2x2 keyboard matrix for starting up. This is the schematic:
To customize a hacker keyboard, you have to carefully consider the key matrix.
And this is how it looks on a breadboard:
Configuring the breadboard is a critical step in building a keyboard for developers.
