A,B buttons labeling?

Did anyone else notice that although the A and B buttons are not labeled, they do line up with the A and B in the ArduBoy logo?

Perhaps recoloring the A and B in future builds might be a good idea?

I’m not the first to have noticed it but I did mention it last September, and again in March.

It is a really clever design, whoever come up with the idea.

I noticed that A and B in “Arduboy” were well positioned depending on the buttons and I don’t think recoloring those letters is a good idea. The present build is both functional and subtle. As soon as somebody told you the secret trick, you see it very clearly on the front of your Arduboy.

You can also just remember that the buttons are in AlphaBetical order :slight_smile:

In my personal opinion, it would be better to have them labeled, just because usability reasons. Not a problem for me, but it is “free” to fix using the pcb silkscreen

For now I’m pretty happy with the subtle labeling using the Arduboy logo at the same time. A and B also makes sense as most of us read left to right. It’s also opposite of what Game Boy had so makes us different.

Also we only have 2 buttons so labeling them to avoid confusion is not a high priority, prefer keeping it clean.
