Colourful Keyboard DIY



Between my job and my personal life, I spend a lot of time on the computer every day. A LOT. So much that I really need my workspace to be cheerful, fun, and inspiring. A plain old black keyboard like this just doesn’t fit the bill. But what’s a girl to do?


Err… evidently the LOT OF TIME being spent on the computer (between your job and personal life) doesn't involve doing anything of importance or significance. If you were indeed THAT busy (on the computer) doing something of any consequence whatsoever, I doubt you would have found the time to pull out every key and paint each one of them.

Well… I think it's a waste of time and serves absolutely no purpose. On top of that… it looks absolutely horrid. But hey… what do I know.

5 Opinions:

I liked the ombré version of the keyboard though I think the rainbow-hued one is more practical.
For a person like me who has better visual memory than textual retention, the coloured keys would be advantageous. I am sure I would type faster and more accurately on that multicoloured keyboard though I would prefer less of the neon and more of maybe girly pastels.
The only issue is that I wouldn't have the patience to do that... Also, if I do something like that I'd rather stencil in the alphabets and numerals than write them with a sharpie.
I'll admit that it may not be aesthetically pleasing to everyone but it is cheerful if you enjoy colours and IMO, it's practical too.

In my humble opinion (as stated in the post) a waste of time.

And also as stated in my post - What do I know.

Just curious though... for someone spending so much time in front of the computer... I do find it a tad bit difficult to swallow that the person would look at the keyboard long enough to even register the colours for visual memory.

I mean.. if someone does spend a lot of time on the computer typing or coding or whatever... they usually just glance at the keyboard once in a while for placing their fingers... the rest of the time, they are just staring at the screen and typing away. So I don't really understand how the visual memory comes into play anyway. Not enough of an argument to term it practical anyways (not for me).

True that... Typing has more of muscle memory in play than visual...

I used to code for hours and type lengthy copy but for some reason I still cannot type without looking at the keyboard. I rarely peek at the screen just to see if the matter is aligned properly, otherwise while typing I keep looking at the keyboard. I tried various typing tutors to change that to no effect.
That is why I said this particular keyboard would be easier for me to use.
