Increase your productivity.

Create next-level macros with any application.

For creatives, by creatives

Half a Moonlander

Half a Moonlander, with custom firmware for effortless control of your creative applications.

Not a keyboard: A creative companion. The most powerful macro pad you’ve ever had. Fully customizable.

We are developing Project Halfmoon in the open.

The hardware is proven — tens of thousands of people are using the Moonlander. Now, let's make it perfect for creatives, together.

This is where Founding Members come in: This is a diverse and articulate group of professional creatives who will help us ensure Project Halfmoon truly helps people in the field.

What applications should we support? What are the most important features within each app? What would be the ultimate macro pad, for you?

A cadre of trusted creatives joined in as Founding Members and are currently helping us steer Project Halfmoon.

Applications are now closed. Once units begin shipping, Founding Members are first in line.

Halfmoon Keycap

Founding Members also get an exclusive keycap with their purchase. This keycap will never be sold or made again.

Founder's Club

Founding members are a part of an exclusive community where they get to weigh in on the most significant creative decisions in the project. Founding Members get to vote, and those who make major creative contributions may also receive their own Project Halfmoon unit as a thank-you for their contribution (subject to ZSA's consideration).

“We wanted to design a shortcut system that any creative could quickly customise to their exact needs, across multiple programs. The aim of Project Halfmoon is to make all your shortcuts available quickly, neatly, and exactly where you want them.”
