id love t buy these things if they were just wireless! why are so little products like that. Yes there are some of them but they usualy have bad battery life. its not impossible tho. Logitech has mechanical wireless keyboards with 1000 hours of battery life. It just feels wrong to bu a product that is mediocer even tho much more can be achieved D:
Also id love it, if it had good software for macros which can be used well (not that qmk garbage where i cant even have german umlauts witchout some programming and different layers of functions) and maybe even a volume knob (in this case the Function keys are genius tho)
So you want a wireless numpad with 1000hr battery life that's programmable (but not with QMK because reasons) and also has a rotary encoder/volume knob?
Honestly I wanted to trash on you here but typing it out that sounds dope af. You should do the legwork to make it happen. Preferably get an aluminum chasis and aluminum plate to go with it and some cool brass logo/decal that goes on it with RGB shinethrough on the sides and per key backlighting. You could probably sell it for $140 on here if you got it made.
I really wasn't complaining about this product as the price seems really good for quite a lot of buttons and rgb if you are into that. I am just complaining about the lack of such products as i mentioned. I know that there is a minute amount of people interested in such a product which explains why big companies like razer, cooler master, logitech havent made such a thing.
Making it myself is a pain in the ass as i dont know anything about electonics. Especially the part with 1000 hours of battery life would be an impossible feat for me to undertake because it takes tons of RND. Logitech is the only company to my knowledge that has managed to build such power efficient wireless transmitters/receivers that it can last for months of use (with crazy low latency).
And selling it for 140$?!?! What absolute moron would buy that? Probably me but also only abut 20 other people. At this point the better bet is to buy a fullsized wireless keyboard from some company because im actually fine with a plastic body and many companies now do hotswap keyboards. I just need a high profile version of the logitech g915 with hotswap and then i dont need stuff like numpads...
