A project log for Pi0CKET - Clicker

To get the true Pi zero experience in your pocket, we are gonna need some buttons!!

so building on my last idea, little bit of shuffling and everything is now connected (hopefully) and in the right place (also hopefully)

its looking pretty good, the front has the buttons, screen, and a neopixel


and the back has a nice juicy space to place a big li-po (3000mah should yield 10 hours) and all the other components are hidden beneath the pi on its smd header.

a little bit more checking and we might be there!

ah, what are the unconnected drill hole for? there is one in every button, that isn't connected - is it a guiding thing?

  Are you sure? yes | no

those are vent holes for the click domes. They are 'dustproof' and come on little stickers, so i dont want the clicking action to force air under the adhesive sheet. The via might be enough, but who knows!!

oh wow :) that's why they're calling it engineering, I guess :)

You should work on your labels a bit :) Use that silkscreen so people know what part it is and of what value, when it is something like a resistor or a cap. Also you might want to add letters to that keyboard :)

yeah thats my next job! the keyboard wont be visible under all the clickdomes, im thinking of a silicone button array on top of them anyhoo

still, for prototyping it might come in handy
