Hardware Keyboard Macro Solution

  • The idea of this device is to act as a modular hardware keystroke macro solution.
  • Standard usage means that the user enters a global custom shortcut or pattern (like double tapping a ctrl key) and then enters a unique custom pattern per macro. Lengthy keyboard strings and patterns are sent to the computer as indiscernible from user typing.
  • The computer sees the dongle as if it is a keyboard.
  • Dongle firmware saves and detects macro shortcuts.
  • The dongle allows all normal typing to pass through to the computer until the global shortcut is typed by the user.
  • The memory is a replaceable SD card, which could store plenty of macros.
  • A lock button could be implemented to lock the device with a strong password (encrypting the SD card).
