A keyboard made from Lego bricks? Oh yes, please!
Don’t you wish your keyboard was awesome like this keyboard?
The humble keyboard has been given an image overhaul by imaginative designer Jason Allemann, who has reconstructed the everyday computer accessory almost completely from Lego bricks.
Featuring witty details such as a plastic baseball cap for the Caps Lock key and a house roof for the Home key, the keyboard has components that can be easily switched and updated, should the brand ever release more suitable bricks. The device functions exactly as a standard keyboard does.
Allemann, who is known for his Lego creations, used the sensor pad from a normal keyboard as the basis for the design, held in a basic Lego frame. The bricks sit on a Lego axel grid that corresponds to the sensor pad.
The keys have not been customised and the keyboard uses only official Lego tiles. Each of the home keys features a stud to make the typing experience extra tactile. — AFP Relaxnews
