2018-06-04 (M) ModuKey

With so few keys on the current build, it was inevitable that it was going to need the ability to switch modes, also known as layers. A mode or layer will allow the keys to be used for a different purpose. The button with a "J" may become the Num Pad "5," and when I want to use the keyboard for 10-Key mode, it will. A lot of room was written into the Arduino sketch so the keyboard can switch between modes. Currently, the only key which works in every mode is the key to switch modes. The rest of them only cause the onboard LED to blink the number of the modes, up to four. They also print to the serial terminal which mode the board is in.

A template was sketched to illustrate which key has which effect in the different modes. These modes don't show the prototype area but those inputs can be reprogrammed in the same way.
