The SquidBox features hot-swapping, so you can choose your own switches from the wide catalog of Kailh Choc V1 & V2 switches. The SquidBox comes with red Kailh Choc V2 switches by default. Their performance complements the buttons quite well. The buttons are essentially injection-molded keycaps that feel good. Punk Workshop buttons are compatible too. The secondary buttons are 3D-printed.


The SquidBox is handmade and assembled in France. It is made of CNC-machined aluminum with a bead-blasted finish. The PCB is the Raspberry Pi Pico with the GP2040-CE firmware. A braided cable is included. A drawstring bag is also included.


You can order your SquidBox with custom art if you like. If you would like custom art for it, we at The Arcade Stick have a custom artwork service. For example, our Carlos Martinez put together these artworks for clients’ SquidBoxes:
