ANAVI Macro Pad 2 was designed an open source fun and productivity solution. Only free and open source software tools like KiCad, OpenSCAD, and Inkscape were used to design it. Quantum Mechanical Keyboard (QMK) version 0.13.19 with V-USB is the default open source firmware. Source code and schematics are available on GitHub.
ANAVI Macro Pad 2 runs on a Microchip ATtiny85, which is a reliable, low-cost, 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller.
