I was so exited that I accidentally commented in another post thinking that post was this... Lol.
Here's the original comment:
I finally saw +1 downloads ( haha... ) in google play for my first android application about food recipes that I created last month.
If you want to have a look the application I created, here's the link:

small mechanical keyboard with RGB backlights

I got one with blue switches (because I like blue switches).

Actually I'll break it down:

Things I like:

  • Feels great
  • has arrows and page-up/down keys and stuff even though it's almost a 60% size
  • Magnetic feet! I always end up snapping the plastic flip-out feet keyboards have so this is really useful
  • Slightly-recessed USB-C connector.
  • Multiple bluetooth profiles
  • Software for configuration is very easy to use
  • ISO UK layout - you wouldn't believe how hard this is to find in RGB keyboards that get more than 1-star reviews

Things I don't like:

  • I see strobing effects with the lights - but that's true with most LED stuff, I just have sensitive side vision.
  • ABS keycaps will go shiny with time
  • Spacebar is a little loud.
  • Can't set the colour of individual keys separately

That's a seriously sweet keyboard!

As someone who is also working with a loud spacebar, I feel ya. I kinda got loud keys in general. But the click is so satisfying.

This week was best for me as I participated in a hackathon for the first time 🥳🚀

MLH Who Done It Hacks? 🕵️‍♂️ organized by MLH local host it was a great experience meeting new people learning new stuff and build something cool 🤓👨‍💻🎈


Here is what I created along with my friend :


"221B-There's only one path"

A thriller mystery game where you have to find hidden clues and messages in each level and try to decrypt them to move to next level

Due to this amazing experience :

  • Learnt how to create mystery game.
  • Learnt how to host a website on using a domain rather that Github pages
  • Got to know how to use Devpost.

Let let fun begin 👨‍💻🚀🕵️‍♂️


The official Website : sherlockinneedofdetective.co

The Devpost : 221B There's only one path

The GitHub Repo : DebugAgrawal/221B
