Keycaps and keyswitches were installed onto the PCBs. The lettered keys would be assigned to type letters when pressed, just like any keyboard. The blank gray switches would be assigned modifier keys like, Ctrl, Alt, GUI (Windows key or Command), and Shift. Caps-lock and spacebar would also be assigned in the appropriate locations.

Keycaps arranged to make this suitable for typing

Code was written to recognize when a button was pressed or released and report that through the serial port. Previously, the serial port would give constant feedback for every single button which might exist on the system. This was a powerful tool for debugging but unsuitable for anything else. The ability to differentiate between pressed and released buttons on the IO expander chips will be important.

Recognizing input changes
