LEGO Keyboard Works As Real Keyboard. FOR REALS!

Really? Yeah, I know; ANOTHER LEGO-related story on The PractitioNERD. But hey, I only post the LEGO-related stories that I consider nerdy and awesome, right? So, on that note, here we have a device that looks like a real keyboard, operates as a true-to-life working keyboard, and has a “Home” button in the shape of a little house (as shown above). Builder Jason Allemann’s keyboard is built entirely of the current and existing LEGO pieces, meaning that while most of the letter keys are essentially basic, many of the keys that serve as special functions are hilariously ad-libbed in their representation. Be sure to check out that “Caps Lock” button; it is AWESOME!

Allemann is well-known for the presence of both form and function in many of his custom LEGO creations. This, his latest work, is even more impressive for the fact that he took the LEGO pieces and constructed them around an existing circuit board from a standard, average keyboard. The main picture below showcases a closer look for all the interesting substitutions that Allemann had to make for the special function keys (i.e., the aforementioned caps lock button, windows, print screen, etc.). Check out the video above that explains the construction of this awesome project.

  2. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote
    and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for newbie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    1. Thank you very much for the comment!

      My first — and BEST — tip for new bloggers is to just start writing about things you love and want to share with others. Once you start writing about the things you’re passionate about, it becomes difficult to stop writing about it, PLUS you’ll find an audience of readers and like-minded collaborators who enjoy the same things. Also, sharing your blog and posts to friends and family on social media can help as well, as some of them will share your blog entries with their circle of friends, thus expanding your audience.

      I hope that helps! Best of luck to you!
