Step 3: 3D Printing Using 3d Modeling File
Download 3d model file from Thinggiverse
(Alternative: Buy from ETSY from the author)
Step 4: Put a Switch Into Upper Case
Step 5: Put an Attiny85 Board in the Upper Case
Step 6: Bend Legs of Switch Toward the Attiny85 Board
Step 7: Soldering
Step 8: Cover It
Step 9: Use Your Favorite Keycap
Step 10: Download and Install Arduino IDE / Board Setting
Follow this instruction
Step 11: Download a Library for USB Keyboard, USB Mouse, USB Media Control Simultaneously
Because the library from Digispark is not enough to use. The main issue is we can’t send a keyboard signal and a mouse signal at the same time. Sending only keyboard or mouse signal is good enough for general situation. But sometimes, we need to use both keyboard and mouse together such as gaming situation.
Step 12: Unzip the File and Copy “TrinketHidCombo” Folder Into Your Arduino Library Folder
Step 13: Open Your Arduino IDE, Copy and Paste Here's Code
Step 14: Upload the Program to Your Board by Following This Order
Unplug the board
Click upload button of Arduino IDE
Wait until “Running Digispark Uploader … “ shows
Plug your board
Notice : In order to upload program to Attiny85 board, you don’t need to select any port. Unplug your board.
Step 15: Tweak It As Your Need

MUTE and CLOSE a video player immediately just in case (Emergency Exit)
When I was young, I would play a game often. Every time my mother suddenly enter into my room, I had to close the game immediately, pretended to watching a “Educational Program”. Sometimes I failed. Back then, I wished I could make this switch
Game macro example
My favorite game is starcraft. I am not good at macro control. For particular, manufacturing labor unit (SCV, Prove or Drone) or military unit such as tanks, marines. I made a macro key for this purpose. (note: only for single play)
