What I wanted to achieve with owl8

I have made 40% keyboards such as Claw44, bat43, and wings42, but since they have a minimum number of keys, I limited the keymap to what is necessary for serious keystroke work (programming in the author's case). I am.

Although I only use it once in a while, there are some tasks that I would like to do with just one keystroke without using layers, and having a macro pad would be useful for those purposes.

I didn't want it to take up too much space on my desk, so I chose a narrow pitch design similar to the bat43 and wings42.

Additionally, BMP allows wireless connectivity, so you can easily move it anywhere you want without having to worry about cable management.

Like wings42, you can use plates for key switch extensions and rotary encoders.

I use the rotary encoder to adjust the volume and display brightness, and assign key switches such as arrow keys, Enter, Space, BS, and ESC.


It is an 8-key macro pad.
-Normally 8 keys, but 4 keys or 2 rotary encoders can be added using an expansion plate.
Exclusive for Kailh low profile switch (Choc).
・The narrow pitch (17x18mm) is narrower than the 19x19mm spacing of a typical key switch, making it a compact size.
- There is battery space for BMP, so you can make it wireless by preparing a BMP and a BMP battery set.

How to assemble

Since diodes are not used, soldering is relatively easy.
・The key switch socket is not supported (soldering directly to the key switch)

Please check the build guide for details.

assembly service

Assembly service for those who are uneasy about soldering.
It may take up to 5 business days until shipment.

・Please purchase the owl8 kit , key switches (8 or more) , and assembly service at the same time.
 (When you select the assembly option on owl8, this item will be added to your cart)
・Since the key switch requires soldering, be sure to purchase the key switch at the same time.
If you purchase a battery set for BMP at the same time, we will also assemble the battery set.
- If you purchase a rotary encoder at the same time, we will also assemble the rotary encoder expansion plate.
- If you purchase 12 or more key switches (including 8 main units) at the same time, we will also assemble the key switch expansion plate.
・Warranty covers only initial defects (within 2 weeks of product arrival).
・Lead solder is used.
Key switches, keycaps, and cables are not included. 


If you spray alcohol on acrylic plates, chemical cracks will occur and they will break easily. Please be careful when using alcohol.
