It takes a lot to get me excited about a piece of kit these days but this did it.
This thing is made for gamers and Livestream content creators, of which I am neither.
I had been looking for a programmable keypad but all of the “industrial” ones have been expensive, hard to program, and worst of all, you have to make your own icons out of paper for the keys.
With the Stream-deck each key is a mini screen so there are no cutting icons out of paper. This thing is relatively easy to program, and not too expensive.
I picked one up on Amazon for $100 over the weekend but I see the price is back up so you are on your own on finding the best price but you will never pay more than$150.
I plan to load it up with all kinds of hotkey combinations for Inkscape and Fusion 360
There are only 15 keys but you can nest functions into folders and subfolders so there is no telling just how many functions you can practically program into one of these.
If I had known just how cool it was going to be I’d have bought two!
This is my top level so far
And this is where it takes me when I press “Web Fav”
And yes, it goes great with the overall motif of the lair.
