LEGO Mechanical Keyboard: Clicking Things Is Awesome!

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 30, 2017

There are so many thing you can do with LEGO; the possibilities are nearly infinite. One of my favorite LEGO builds ever was a keyboard that Jason Allemann built which had LEGO keycaps. Now Jason is back with an updated version of his awesome LEGO keyboard, and it’s better than ever.

This time out, he’s updated the design to use clicky mechanical key switches, and then 3D printed special adapters which connect Cherry MX switch tops to LEGO studs. The result is pretty damned awesome:

Thanks to those adapters, you can make your own LEGO keyboard too. You can download the 3D file for the key cap adapters over on Shapeways here, and check out more about the build over on JK Brickworks’ web site.
