Christmas Pickle

Gherkin with annoying lights

  • Gherkin keyboard
  • 2x3x4mm self flashing LEDs (fast cycle)
  • Gateron clear top switches
  • Vortex PBT double shot keycaps
My entry in the company Christmas ornament contest. The LEDs cycle on their own, there is no control. They all flash the same basic pattern in the same sequence, but they get out of sync very quickly and it ends up looking very random.

The Christmas Pickle is a real thing. Never heard of it before.

The LEDs are from eBay. Search for "2x3x4 RGB flash". They fit inside the clear top Gateron switches. There is also a slow flash version that cycles very slowly. I have some of those too.
