Configured How You Like

Choose a configuration that works for you! The Pikatea Macropad GB3 can be configured to have either 3, 5, or 7 keys. The colors, materials, switches, knobs and keycaps can also be configured! Use the product configuration to select something that matches your workspace!

Easy to Program

The programming is easy thanks to an open source program called VIAL. The interface is easy to use. It lets you control the action of each button press and knob to do whatever you like instantly without flashing new firmware or doing anything complicated. 

More information on VIAL can be found here. QMK code and VIA firmware is also available to download
