So I have been experimenting with keyboard inputs and I think I may have accidentally put a loop in my code that never actually ends the keyboard input thus not allowing me to upload any sketches to fix the problem.

Here is the error code I got when I tried to upload a blank into the qduino:

Arduino: 1.8.1 (Windows Store (Windows 10), Board: "Qduino Mini"

Build options changed, rebuilding all
Sketch uses 4136 bytes (14%) of program storage space. Maximum is 28672 bytes.
Global variables use 148 bytes (5%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2412 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2560 bytes.
An error occurred while uploading the sketch

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Ok strange, just after posting this the qduino decided to flash a different light on me so I try to upload again and it works... So apperantly just by keeping the qduino connected for some time it will start to work again...
