I have a old keyboard, what do I do with it? Answered

Well, im going to buy a new keyboard due to the fact my keyboard has enough dirt and crumbs in it to fill the grand canyon, so I thought I might do something cool with the keys. This includes: - A key keychain - A key USB any other ideas?

With the keys you can do this and/or this. With the circuits you can make this.

Take out the circuit board (keyboards have a clear flexible sheet with silver lines running through it) and make a wallet! I am not going to go through step by step but there are videos on YouTube on how to do it.

You can attach tiny neodymium (cheap) magnets to the little wells in the back, and make awesome fridge magnets.

be green and clean it. if after cleaning keys dont feel bad there is no reason to buy new keyboard if you recycle it - the controller and cable can be used as is to inputs stuff to computer from other diy projects. keep the pad as a connection map
