Framework 16 Laptop RGB LED matrix

I have a lot more respect for people who layout PCBs as their job. It's hard work.

For the past 5 months, I have been working on a RGB LED matrix input module for the Framework 16 laptop. The Framework 16 laptop is a modular repairable laptop that you can check out here: This laptop has the innovative feature where you can change out your keyboard. You can also add or remove a numpad. This is enabled by their input module system when you open up the laptop.


I saw an opportunity to make my own version of the Framework LED Matrix input module. They are only using white LEDs.


You can follow along with my progress on the Framework Community Forum. But, here are two videos of my first prototype.


  1. Is there going to be another production run? (the store currently shows these as out of stock)
