This mini mixbox by Perfect Clear is a sight to behold. Handmade from acrylic and nylon PA12, the MX-style switches can be Akko CS Rose Red or Radiant Red, but because of hot swapping, you can implement your own preferred MX-style switches. There are also six auxiliary keys as well as an additional key.

As this is an acrylic sandwich case design, the PCB is housed between six layers of acrylic. Despite that, the Clear – MX is thin and low profile, but it can sit comfortably on one’s lap, and there is enough real estate for your hands to navigate. Custom art can be placed between the two top layers, and we at The Arcade Stick can provide you custom art through our fightstick artwork service.

The Raspberry Pi Pico is featured in the Clear – MX, and it runs the GP2040 firmware for optimal response time, though the highlight is the customizable RGB LED that is available. The connection is USB-C, so have a type-C cable handy.
