Intro: NEKI: Nerd Key Ring (Qr-Code Key Ring)
NEKI is a Nerd Keyring. It has qr-code on it which contains information about you, like your image, phone number, email ID. In case you lost your key then the one who found it can contact you and return you the key.
Sure you can also just write your number on your key ring but it will be totally uncool, specially if are a Maker or Tech guy/girl. And I am sure nobody wants to be uncool.
It's my first instructable out of technology zone.
So lets start making this super cool key ring and become awesome ;-)
Step 1: Tools and Items You Need
- A piece of wood(thin one as shown above)
- A paper
- A key chain (preferably old one)
- A computer
- Drill machine
- A filer
- Transparent cello-tape
- Laser printer
Step 2: Prepare the Wood
This step requires physical task and need some sharp tools, so if you are a kid or not comfortable with this tools then take help of elders.
- With the help of hacksaw cut a small piece of wood.
- With the help of filer smooth the surface of the wood.
- With the help of drill machine make a small hole at one corner of the wood.
Step 3: Generate the Qr-code

- Here you will have multiple options under two categories, static and dynamic.
- I chose vCard because it has many options inside. You can choose anything depending upon your need, Then click Next.
- Now you upload your image, choose color, and fill other information like your email ID. You can also provide link to your social networking account like facebook, linkdin, youtube etc. then click Next.

- In the next page you can download your qr-code and also check statistics like how many people scanned your qr-code worldwide.
Refer images for better understanding.
Step 4: Integrating Raw Materials
- Take print out of your qr-code. And must check that the size of your print out should match the size of the wood piece.
- Cut the print out accordingly and paste it on the wood piece firmly with the help of glue.
- Cut out any access paper from the side of the wood.
- To protect the paper either laminate the wood or apply transparent cello-tape (wide one) on it.
