Backlit Keyboard Mod Request Answered

I really want to see a backlit keyboard instructable, hopefully better than this one:
www.instructables.com/id/How-to-pimp-your-keyboard

More like these ones:

metku.net/modgallery/detail.php?id=4696

That would be sweet.

might be pointless, more expensive and tedious.

But it would be cool

maybe use the instructable idea and cut a piece of plexiglass to fit behind the keys and roughen the surface with 200 grit sandpaper, and light it to backlight it. hope this helps

I think the easy way is to purchase a clear keyboard from xoxide and a 12 inch el wire strip.
