Zima - 12 key macropad
NOTE: This is a group buy item. This group buy is currently not yet open, so enjoy the sneak peek while it's here! =) What is a group buy?
Sometimes it's nice to have dedicated buttons for common tasks. Enter the Zima: A twelve key macropad the size of a creditcard.
The Zima is feature-packed, letting you experience many aspects of what QMK has to offer in a beginner-friendly package. Display your current layer on the OLED display, let it shine with RGB underglow and give it a twist with the rotary encoder.
This is a kit. Some assembly is required. Most components come presoldered, you'll only need to solder switches, the OLED display and optional rotary encoder.
While this item is part of a group buy, a revision of this macropad has already been produced succesfully. This means that there is a low risk of delays, and an order will be placed shortly after the end of the preorder phase.
- 12 key macropad
- Powered by QMK Firmware

About the options
The plate case color options include clear OLED windows. The high profile case color options include a dark window for the matte black case, and clear windows for the clear and frosted cases. The matte black case includes a single frosted layer to allow the underglow to shine through.
The plate case is compatible with MX and Choc switches. The high profile case is only compatible with MX switches. There is currently no compatible case for ALPS switches, though the PCB itself does accept ALPS switches.
The rotary encoder is optional. An encoder can be used as a key, though it is heavier to press than a switch.
Revision 2 is the current revision. Revision 2.1 will change the switch pin holes to accept Mill Max sockets for MX and Choc switches.
This item does not contain switches or keycaps.
The Zima has a controller on board for haptic feedback, which should be compatible with Adafruit's Mini Motor Disc. However, I haven't gotten this working yet, so it's not an advertised feature. It may start working in the future through a firmware change, or perhaps a hardware revision will be required. It's an adventure!
