Homemade DAS Keyboard

Want the new DAS Keyboard but don't have $80? Never fear because for a measly can of semi-flat black spray paint, an old keyboard, and five minutes of your time you can make your own!



No disassembly of the keyboard is required, just follow the instructions on the spray can and after 15 minutes of dry time you'll be just as cool as those punks in Maximum PC who get to build the dream machine. For best results use primer first.

so, why would someone make a keyboard w/o lables and make the price out the wazo for a just a keyboard? seems pointless to me, if i ever need a labeless keyboard, ill just grab a $4 can of spray paint...

Well, if I heard James correctly when he was telling me about this, I think each row of keys has a different sensitivity for being inputted into the computer. Like the ones at the top of the keyboard are harder to push down than those in the middle since it takes less effort to strike them when typing.

Yeah the real DAS keyboard is actually really pimp. Unfortunately it's total pimpness can't be displayed in pictures.

Which means we get to buy one some day and test it out right? Then we can post personal experience in the usefulness of DAS keyboards.
