SCRABBLE Keyboard

Whats the word count for Cool?

What's the word count for "Cool"?

While surfing the posts of BoingBoing I ran into this awesome pic of a custom keyboard built out of Scrabble tiles. From the creators at Datamancer…

This keyboard was commissioned by a couple of friends of mine from back east (NJ) who are avid Scrabble players. Most of the keys are made from real Scrabble tiles that were all hand-beveled (truly an exercise in patience/masochism!) and built onto a USB, clicky, mechanical-switch keyboard. This keyboard was going into a Mac environment so I decided to use brushed aluminum for the casing and round all of the corners to keep with the sleek, simple Macintosh styling. Near the end of the build, I decided that the keyboard looked a little too minimalist so I added some silver hardware and a seam to put a slightly industrialized twist on the design.

  1. Oh my gosh oh my gosh. Here’s hoping Parker Bros won’t get their panties in a wad, but that is TEH ROXXORZ. Given the handwork done on that thing, it must retail at about $15,100!
