From the folks at Solder Party comes the Keyboard FeatherWing, an easy way to add a handheld QWERTY keyboard and a 2.6” color display (+ more) to your project! Nice hand-held size and great for typing with your thumbs, early 2000s-style.
The keyboard itself does not contain an MCU/CPU/SoC that you can program; you will need a board compatible with the Adafruit Feather Ecosystem. Once you plug it into the back, you have access to a mini 'BlackBerry'-like display that you can use to create a nifty portable device.
Some notable Feathers include the Giant Board (Linux!), the Orange Crab (FPGA!), the Huzzah32 (WiFi!), the Feather nRF5240 Express (BLE!), the Feather M0 with RFM95 (LoRa!), and many, many others. There is support for both Arduino and CircuitPython, with example code for each.
