I recently got an internship with a company that is a distributor of industrial products such as hydraulics, pneumatics and various other mechanical and electrical devices.  My  most recent assignment was definitely work for an intern.  They have an online store with tens of thousands of products and lucky for me, approximately half of these items did not have an associated picture or datasheet.  My job, to take this giant speadsheet of pictureless items and search for them online and the save the pictures in one folder and the datasheets in a separate folder.

Now after the first day of constant copying and pasting, and having to change the folder I was using, my hand hurt and I was tired of the repetition so I got the idea.  I had an idea earlier in the year to make a little keyboard that I could use for symbols when writing a lab report, like the ohm symbol, micro symbol, etc.  Well I never did do that but I had all the parts for it so I decided to finally make this project and use it to help me at my job.

I would like to point to an episode of SparkFun's Engineering Roundtable that gave me the headstart to do this project.  It can be found here.

Step 1: Materials

Arduino Uno(https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11021)


Sparkfun enclosure(https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8601)

Small pushbutton, NO(already had)

USB cable(already had)

Ribbon cable with headers or jumper wires
<p>Have you had any problems with ghosting with this keypad?</p>
I have not had that problem before.
