A project log for NES Shortcut Keyboard

A shortcut keyboard (or macro pad), but with an aesthetic flair inspired by a classic console.

I've had all of the electronic hardware for a while now,  but have been dragging my feet on creating the actual housing. Well I've finally made some progress. Using an SLS Form 3 printer, I printed out the case and the keycaps. Up next: assembly and finishing the code.

Prior to this, I actually did a brief redesign to make the whole thing more compact. Part of this was due to the fact that my first test print seemed so large as to be unwieldy. But honestly, the real reason was because it wouldn't fit on the Form 3 printer bed without the size adjustment.
