Raspberry Pi has introduced an official keyboard and mouse that work with the venerable developer board for makers, tinkerers and entrepreneurs.

The keyboard is a 78-key matrix, like most keyboards found on laptops, and comes in a compact style used in previous Pi kits. The keyboard connects via USB, and the PCB for the keyboard and the hub was designed by Raspberry Pi, with help from Holtek for the firmware for key matrix management.

Initially, the keyboard is launching in the U.S. and Europe, but the Raspberry Pi Foundation plans to expand it to other countries in the future.

The mouse is a standard three-button, scroll-wheel configuration with Raspberry Pi logos on the base and cable and it matches the color of the Pi case. The mouse connects via USB type-A connector and is compatible with Raspberry Pi products and comes in the same colors as before.

The official Raspberry Pi mouse and keyboard are available now on the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s website.
