Laser keyboard

I’d had high hopes for this board, in the end I’d used some tactile switches that had a higher spring weight then I liked. I’ll need to replace the switches and I also want to paint it, but its in the drawer until then.


This was the first keyboard I built, it took 2 attempts, on the first attemt I put the diodes in wrong. Picked up anothe pcb and did it right the second time. I found the surface mount LEDs incredibly difficult at that time.
