Hello everyone! I'm finally back with the Bento Macropad groupbuy. The Bento is a 5-key, 3D-printed macropad with a rotary encoder. All design credits to u/nguyedt and thank you for your blessing to do this GB.

Details and Specs:

  • 3D printed Bento macropad, case is made of a separate top and bottom parts. Customizable color options/combos.
  • Includes rotary encoder and metal knob. Does not come with keycaps.
  • Fully assembled and prebuilt (kits also available separately)
  • Built with ProMicro and uses Micro-USB connection.
  • Fully programmable through QMK. However, QMK configurator cannot be used because it does not support rotary encoder, so I offer complimentary layout-making and flashing with each order. I can make any simple layout requested (simple macros and anything from this page).
  • Quality Control: All Bentos are subject to strict quality benchmarks. However, 3D printing lines, marks, and seams are unavoidable and to be expected. Please be aware of this.

For more information on this macropad, please refer to the following: YouTube video and IC post.

Configuration Options:

  • Colors: any combination of black and white (Bento is 2 separate parts, a top case and a bottom plate).
  • Switches:
    • ALPACAS, v1 67g (Tealio spring), medium-generously lubed with 205g0 and filmed with 0.15mm TX films, 14 unit limit
    • DUROCK 62g, linear, lightly lubed with 205g0 and filmed with Deskeys
    • DUROCK T1 67g, tactile, lightly lubed with 205g0 (not on legs) and filmed with Deskeys
    • KAILH BOX JADES, clicky, stock
  • Keymap/Layout: Choose from options or make your own.

Sale Format:

This will be a FCFS sale of 30 units, $46 shipped CONUS each. The sale form will open on Wednesday, May 5th at 11am PST, and run until May 16th or until all spots are filled. Please comment on this post if you have filled out the form so I can better keep track of your order. Invoices will be sent out through PayPal G&amp

Bento Sushi is now open at the Student Union cafeteria 🍣

The place just opened up today and I stumbled upon it looking for something to eat. They have sushi, ramen, and bento boxes. Even tofu options. They don't take Knight's cash (yet?).

It's good stuff. Go show them some love!

Put my Koi Betta (named Bento) into a large bucket (with 5 gal of water and decorations) while I do maintenance on his tank... Checked in about 2 hours later and seems like he was also hard at work! :O He makes a nest every chance he gets, but these are getting huge. Guess he's a happy boy?

[GB] Wave Deskmat - Seigaiha pattern | (Yes. It is somewhat like GMK Bento's and Masterpiece's Deskmats)

The Wave Deskmat GB is now live!

Featuring the iconic Seigaiha pattern, a traditional East Asian motif of the sea, symbolic of power and resistance; and also surges of good luck!

Or it could be a repeating WiFi symbol in your interpretation.

Neutral and minimal, but classy with a touch of culture, this will complement many setups. Many of you have seen this >1000 years old pattern before as deskmats for the popular GMK Bento and GMK Masterpiece groupbuys (and also on many Japanese inspired fashion/products). I simply wish to offer more colour variations and opportunities for users who may have missed out on those GBs like I did (Biip and Energieschleuder also gave me the OK). Note, this is my execution of the pattern and there are some differences between it and those run prior (see Geekhack post for detailed breakdown). I think this simple pattern lends to versatility for it to be great backdrop to many keyboard keycaps (i.e. Blue for Mizu/Striker/Atlantis, Black for nearly everything else, Lavender for the lighter cute vibes, Green for some cool upcoming sets, or to add some life to your BoW/WoB). Consider it to be jeans or a little black dress for your wardrobe. Timeless and versatile, with effortless elegance in its simplicity.
