More things to do with old keyboards

Picture of

I saw these things in the window of a store in San Francisco today, but the picture I took of the store's name didn't come out. I may have to do something like this next time I find a dead keyboard on the street (or, you know, lying around the office).

Those are so cool! What berkin said about the 3D art thing would be cool too.

You could somehow attach the keys to your wall in an interesting pattern, to make 3D art.

Those are so cute! :D That's pretty inspiring. I wonder what else I can do with them. My favorite thrift store has an entire area full of keyboards, typewriters, and old computers.
