A fully-functional keyboard made out of... Lego!

Jason Allenmann builds a fully-functional keyboard out of Lego

Jason Allenmann makes some truly amazing things with Lego, but his latest creation is something for PC lovers: a fully-functional keyboard made out of the little plastic blocks.



Underneath the keyboard is the traditional circuit board and sensor pad from a normal keyboard, but the exterior is entirely made out of Legos. Allenmann said that his biggest hurdle was to interface the Lego keys with the sensor pad, but instead of using custom-painted tiles or stickers, Allenmann used printed tiles that Lego has officially released over the years.


Allenmann was quite creative with this bit of the keyboard, where the Home key is represented by a roof-shaped Lego, while a tile with a photo of a scroll is used for the Scroll Lock key. The Caps Lock? A mini baseball cap - a nice touch.
