I’ve always rather liked the keys that Apple has been using on their keyboards over the last several years. While they’re not as thick and clicky as an old school IBM keyboard, I still find myself typing very quickly and comfortably on Apple’s keyboards. While the keys themselves are very practical and minimal, I wouldn’t mind if they were even more stylish and tactile. That’s why I’m excited by the design of these wooden key covers for MacBook keyboards.
They’re made by Lazerwood Industries, and laser-cut from actual walnut or cherry wood. The keys even have laser-engraved letters on them, so you can feel them with your fingertips. Each key has a thin layer of adhesive on back that’s strong enough to hold them in place, but removable if you choose to take them off down the road. You’ll need to be very patient installing them, but the end result is clearly worth the effort.
The wooden covers are still thin enough to not interfere with closing the lid of the MacBook Pro, and they just look awesome when in place. You can pick up a set of Lazerwood keys for $40(USD).
For those of you with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, there’s also a version available for you guys.
