Compact

Using a compact, laptop-style matrix, the keyboard is minimally sized providing great versatility and efficiency of storage e.g. in school classrooms.

Flexible

With 3 USB sockets the keyboard acts as a flexible hub supporting a wide range of connected configurations with Raspberry Pi products and other accessories, enabling integration into a wide range of usage settings and projects. Wired products were specified to provide compatibility with all Raspberry Pi products and to ensure availability at the lowest price.

High Quality
True to the ethos of the foundation, the keyboard and mouse have a robust, high-quality feel despite their low price. KD worked closely with Raspberry Pi and the manufacturing team to ensure that the products look and feel matched the expectation of the brand and the Raspberry Pi community. This extended to design and manufacture of bespoke cables, specified for durability.

Starter Kit

In combination with the Raspberry Pi 3B, official case, power supply, and Getting Started book, the keyboard and mouse complete the new starter kit currently sold exclusively in the Raspberry Pi store in Cambridge.
