DIY keyboard Inspired by Mr. Robot.
The fsociety Keyboard
I have wanted to build something like this for a long time. I love my Mechanical Keyboard and having it be wired doesn’t bother me because it’s my desk keyboard. This doesn’t make it easy to hang back and type though and when I am using my TV it’s nice to have a wireless keyboard. The problem is none of the wireless options with a trackpad are any good. I have looked high and low for a good Mech board with a touchpad Everything I have tried has either been heavy as hell or just trash. I’m not saying this is a good board ( I have yet to try one) but it’s a step in the right direction. This looks like it has a lot of potential. Honestly, I love the idea of Analog sticks on a keyboard. As a gamer, the one thing that has always bothered me is the WSDA setup. I always get cramps in my fingers when playing for even moderate durations. Don’t get me started on those keypads some companies offer. I just want a good gaming board with even one analog stick on the left side but hey that’s my problem. Aside from all that, this is an inspired build. Completely wireless even when charging and an amazing look. If this doesn’t get picked up as the next big thing in keyboards I don’t know what will.
“What I’m about to tell you is top secret. A conspiracy bigger than all of us. There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about, the ones that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission.” -Elliot, Mr.Robot.
If you love building things, this is one hell of a project. This board has more bells and whistles than a 50’s Cadillac. I would happily pay for a Kit or a complete board. but what do you guys think?
Head over to Hackaday for the full build thread and Info on how to build your very own. I hope he sells some kits.

That’s pretty neat
I like it a lot
That is a really cool and unique keyboard. I would love to build my own,
Shiny. I’d electrocute myself for sure, though.
Looks like it would be a good home theater, Kodi and media PC keyboard.
I would like to game on it!
Heck yeah this is sweet!
It looks great, but it’s probably too expensive to even package it in a kit…
Sweet keyboard. Can only imagine what typing on it would feel like!
This looks great! I want one. 😉
Wow, what a good looking keyboard. I love the colors.
It is a brilliant idea, I love it.
that really cool keyboard!
This is sooo cool!!! My husband and son would love that it has an analog stick! I would probably play more games myself if I had an analog stick because I’m just not coordinated enough to play with just the keys!
I didn’t even notice the analog stick at first because I was so distracted by the colors. What a cool feature!
looks awesome, worth the hard work and money if put to it, as for me, i am too lazy and poor 😛
I would love a colourful keyboard like this one…it ROCKS! 🙂

Back in the day you either had a Logitech keyboard or you had a Logitech keyboard! There was no choices or options, especially Do-It-Yourself options!
It’s great to see & read about stuff like this.
Saturday Night Fever computer keyboard. Ah ah ah staying alive…

This is so cool I WANT
it just looks soooo so MAGICAL <3.

Rainbow sensation ! NICE !
Who is going to make this?
I like all the do-dads on it but the clear keys and lights make it look a little toyish. I guess it might be because the cover isn’t on it in the pics. I hope it has a cover to go around the electronics…Right? I really like the analog sticks on the sides. That’s a great add-on! The colors don’t look all that great on it…Doesn’t it make it look kind of cheap?….Which I am sure it is NOT!
Heard it’s a good show- mr robot, have yet to watch, nice keyboard!
I want to experience using one for sure.
