The most comfortable keypad for the gaming and esports industry.
The only keypad built in a true curve.

Designed with natural hand contour in mind to enable you to game comfortably. Keeps the keys right at your fingertips… and allows you to engage them head-on at 90 degrees.
Keys are right where you need them to improve speed and reaction time in game play.

Who We Are
We are gamers just like you. However, since we can’t all be professional esports athletes, we also have careers outside the game industry to pay the bills. Matt has worked for almost 20 years as a computer engineer in various industries. He designed electronics for military aircraft, so rest assured that your Sidequest keypad will function correctly with quality electronics. He also is a gamer, so the ergonomic design of the Sidequest has been fine-tuned for the most natural hand position. Leslie’s background is in finance, so she’ll keep the Sidequest Kickstarter campaign on the road to successful fulfillment.
Matt has wanted to create a comfortable side gaming keypad for a few years. When events unfolded in Spring of 2020, we had spare time to start developing the first protypes. A 3D printer and several spools of filament later we developed a comfortable key layout on a contoured hand design. The electronic PCB layout and internal brains were the easy part for Matt. Did you know that just because you can 3D print something it doesn’t make it mass producible? We’ve learned a lot about the injection molding process and feel like we are ready to bring the Sidequest to market.
