Feather and input lag

by rodd9 on Thu Nov 05, 2020 4:54 pm

Hi all,

I am going to build a custom keyboard and I want it to be wireless. I was told about the feather pcb and it looks nice and all but before i pull the trigger I would like to know about the input lag i would get with it, since I am also going to play shooters with it.

Additionally I would also like to know about a possible faraday effect, since I will put it inside an aluminum case. Could the signal bé blocked?

Thanks in advance!

Which Feather are you referring to? We have quite a few with USB and/or Bluetooth capabilities. https://www.adafruit.com/feather

Latency will depend partly on how efficient your code is and partly on what kind of communication you use. In general, USB is capable of lower latency than Bluetooth.

I was told about the Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit. I thought that it would bé ready to plug and play with a dongle and all. I guess id need to find my way around then?

I aim to have a cable free desk so id bé using Bluetooth

This is competing against logitechs lightspeed
