Check and extended the QMK Firmware for mechanical keyboards

a project by SKaim

A lot of custom-built or ethusiast-level keyboards such as the Planck, Zeal60, Let's Split and many more use an open-source firmware called QMK. This firmware allows you to freely define your keyboard layout and add a lot of functionality (i.e. emitting a different keycode on long and short keypress, dual-function keys, leader keys (think of vi's :)). We could use the Hack Week to add functionality, check the source code for security issues and add support for more keyboards. If you own a qmk-running mechanical keyboard or plan on doing so feel free to join me :)

Lioncast RGB Keyboard user software, protocol reverse engineering

a project by rsimai

I recently bought a Lioncast LK200 RGB keyboard which is a nice piece of hardware and has exactly the look and feel I want. All basic functions work well under Linux. Unfortunately the manufacturer only provides user software to upload/download profiles and control the LEDs for Windows. The device can be configured and operates autonomously from any OS but color setup is a PITA and it's very easy to factory-reset, and lose all config. I approached them but Lioncast seems neither interested to support native Linux nor to provide protocol specs so one can implement it. I thought to take this as an example to learn about reading and reverse-engineering USB device software.

SUSE branded keycaps models

an invention by cbosdonnat

Project Description

A lot of people are using mechanical keyboard. Having a custom SUSE-branded keycap would be cool. The idea is to create a set of 3D models for such keycaps in various profiles for everyone to print.
