  • Head Mouse with MPU6050 and Arduino Micro

    I'd be worried about static electricity being generated by that headband touching the components directly.

    Ok actually the WD-40 smell is still vaguely there a week later. Not strong but noticeable. But it probably should continue to fade. So keep that in mind if you're trying my version. I still think my keys move smoother than they would have if I didn't use WD-40. But next time I'll try detergent and a brush, as the article states.

    If I have to thank you for one thing, it's the reminder to take a photo of the key layout first. I was going to be a bit gung ho but took the advice and man it saved me time during re-assembly. As a nerd, you think you know the layout, but you don't.I went about the rest of it a different way though. Pretty manly. I just used an old toothbrush, and a heaps of WD-40. Slathered everything in it. Took off all the keys, took out the rubber sheet, scrubbed every part with the toothbrush and WD-40. Smelt bad at first but a quick wipe down with a paper towel, and then after assembly, a final wipe down with a wet wipe and a dry paper towel and the smell is practically gone and the thing is really clean. And hell yeah, no more sticky keys, no way. As a bonus, typing sounds really quiet.
