DIY Asus Eee Keyboard: in Soviet Russia, You Make Your Own Computer

by Lambert Varias

In Soviet Russia, you don’t wait for ASUS to release – no. In Soviet Russia, you make do with an old – no. In Soviet Russia, my jokes work. Anyway… A Russian geek stuffed the innards of an Eee PC 900 into a Sven Multimedia EL 4002 (pdf) keyboard.


If you’ve seen the real ASUS Eee keyboard – which incidentally will be available this month – you know that it doesn’t look anything like this mod. But even though the mod is chubby and faceless, it’s every bit as useful as the real thing: just attach it to a monitor via VGA and you’re good to go. The keyboard also has USB ports, a headphone jack and a built-in mic.


FYI, an Eee PC 900 netbook is equipped with a 900 MHz Intel Celeron M and 1 GB of DDR2 RAM. Here’s a naked look at the mod:


Funny how there’s still quite a bit of space left on the keyboard. You know, space for something like a screen. But maybe that wasn’t in the modders’ plan, which you can view in detail – and in Russian – here. Don’t even attempt to run the page through Google Translate, as the resulting “translation” only adds random English words, not sense.

    I own an Asus Eee and an acer netbook but i often use the Asus Eee because it is so much lighter and easily fits in my small bag.

    I got an Asus Eee as a christmas gift. It is very compact but i wish that the LCD screen was larger.

    my Asus Eee PC broke down a couple of months ago. I bought a new one which is still an Asus Eee, i love this netbook.
