I got my order of PCBs for the finger and thumb clusters in from jlcpcb today. Exciting! My first time designing and having a PCB made. I'm super happy with the result. Surprisingly, everything seems fine with them so far.


I got one soldered up and attached to a cluster, and was able to send my first key presses with it, with the current in-progress QMK firmware.

Thanks for all this work, Ben!

Do you think it's possible to get an analog (analogic?) reading from these sensors? So that the key could be used as a mouse and have sensitivity to moving the cursor slow (move the stick a bit) and fast ("bottom out").
