This is a design for a “Bottle Cap Keyboard”, a miniature version of The President’s Key.
Although I made this for an Arduino Pro Micro case, it’s really a working single-key-board that can be used as a hot-key-board.
Grab any favorite PCO1881 standard bottle cap (most soft drink bottles conform).
I programed it with Cmd+Q(mac) / Alt+F4(pc) for quit from applications but you can change it to any key command.

Filament: Any PLA Coffee
Layer Height: 0.2mm
Print out parts and place an Arduino Pro Micro board with pinhead attached.
Insert the switches into the top case and wire them up. (I used pinhead connector)
One pin of switch needs a signal wire to 8(A8), and other pin is connected to ground(GND).
Firmly press the keycaps onto the button stems.
Upload the firmware and enjoy!
