    A real test to see if you know where the letters are. THat wouldnt affect me at all, i type mad fast and i know where all the letters are.

    I'd make a keyboard for EVERY letter!

    That's some decent money, over $1000 if he gets $15 for each one.

    And if they're all stolen, 100% profit!

    Now I'm seriously thinking about doing this myself :D

    well IT guys have tons of spare keyboards, and keys and random stuff, so it's not like he stole a bunch of keyboards to do this. If he doesn't have access to a bunch of keyboards or keys it's not hard to goto compusa and snag a bunch of X keys from all the display computers.

    *shrug*

    Any typist worth a nickel would be entirely unaffected by having all X keys.

    Check out this keyboard on amazon :D

    Edit: Bah, just noticed that they fixed it. It used to be listed (obviously by mistake) for $1,000,000.00. Someone must have caught it.
     
  9. That's funny - I used to work at a place which accepted donor machines to fix up and sell to the disabled. We had a stack of about 300 keyboards and used to joke about swapping the keys around so some poor bastard would end up going slowly insane.

    "Q! I hit Q and it gives me an R! And then P is actually F - or is it J? No, it's W!"

    My favourite thing about working at that place was rubbish time - throwing old computer stuff at a brick wall and then shovelling it into a bin is great fun, not to mention good for the arms. :)

    Did you know if you hit a wall with a keyboard just right, the keys spray up in a beautiful fountain of plastic grey? Mouse baseball is also kinda fun.
     
  10. 86 keys, the keyboard isn't even clean. What a dufus..

    i saw that one a few weeks back.. that was a good laugh...;)
     
  12. i havent looked at my keys in like a year!:eek:

    Was sad how I memorized them all tho....one summer I played Starcraft literally all day everyday and I typed so damn much that I kind of just memorized it, but I have no idea where my hands are going, I don't even think about it anymore, it just happens. It's actually pretty cool tho :D
     
  13. this gives me an idea....they could make keyboards with designs on them instead of letters, like make a keyboard normal, then instead of making letters on the keys, make like a big bass across all the keys. or write "talkbass" or something, would that be hard for companies to do?

    well...it would be very impractical.

    that's more of a user mod.
     
  15. Due to mass manufacturing it would cost a hefty price to get a modified keyboard. :(

    Maybe get a chemical and take all the letters off and use some magic marker :) !
     
  16. Remember that movie "Hackers" with Angelina Jolie. They spray painted their keyboards.
