newbeatle,
The"silamaler" for pc just means some program "similar" to controlmate for Mac.
the program you want for the PC is "uberOptions" and can be found here.

I hope this helps you.
The relay is nothing more than a switch for power to the LED's found in the keyboard as well. It appears that he is wiring the LED's in parallel. From what I think I'm reading, it appears to me that he is using the 5 volts from the USB port. If that's true then I would use a resistor in the + line ahead of the LED's because the USB port is only good for 500 ma, I think. Without a resistor any problem with the LED's could overload the USB circuits.

hi, maybe a seems like an idiot but.... can you describe with an more detailed schemtic how this think works? it seems to me that you atach an relay instead of the leds of the keyboard ? and other question, can you put a link to get the program that you say? (silamaler) . i seek for it but i just came here to the instructables again!!! thnks from saltillo coahuila mexico , el ing. Alex

You need to use the macro setting on your camera. Besides that (and the spelling) pretty good instructable.
You do know you can use the spell check that comes with instructables and firefox.

Unbelievably bad execution of a nice instructable idea. It's hard to take someone seriously who spells this badly (or carelessly).

Holy cow! It was decent in its own right, but you should really proofread your instructables. The blame is not entirely yours though. I also hold whomever reviewed it responsible.

sercet, cercit, joind, realy, prepareing, thred, reeatach, couler, togeter, screwthe, assined, conectid, correctley, shoudent... Did you read over your work? 'Cause it is full of spelling and grammar errors... One time reading over it could have fixed that. circuit, joined, relay, preparing, thread, reattach, colour\color, together, screw the, assigned, connected, correctly, shouldn't...are the right words. Nice Instructable, though.

Cool. Looks a little rushed but other wise very nice.
