Steampunkkeyboard by vonSmallhausen Steampunkkeyboard by vonSmallhausen
A quickly edited image of my compleated keyboard.
It's been mostly done for around 4months now... It was just that it hade green LEDs which were compleatly terrible for this... So anyways, 2-3 days ago I stole the yellow ones from an old back-up keyboard. I will probably add lenses for the LED though since they a alot shorter then the orignal ones.

( [link] <-- Original keyboard.)

Total cost: 195 SEK (= ~18€ or 23$)


Just to make it clear. This is not a copy of anything. All I have done is taken insipration from the steampunkworkshop and Atratus here on DA ( [link] ).
I was so stunned by how beautiful they had made their keyboards. So, most of the inspiration was from steampunkworkshop, and the idea to use a Labtec Standard Keyboard Plus was from Atratus.
I set ut to make a keyboard with a steampunk feel without having to pay more then 200 SEK. Which I did.

Hopefully at you local fabric store. That's where I got mine. They are actually meant to go on to cloths. Then I just measured the inner diameter and printed every letter, glued them on and had some varnish on them so they can handle moister.

Make sure you have a basic idea when you start.
Don't be afraid to make changes if you find something works better then you had originally plan.
Make things as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Be sure you have fun the entire time.
Those are pretty much the rules I work by. :P

But more technical advice... Make sure you pic a keyboard that is easy to mod. Most non-low profile is okay, but you have to make sure that you can remove the keycaps from the keyboard or you will have a hellish time modding it.
Don't know really... be creative! :D
