Useless Keyboard? Then Make a QWERTY Rubik’s Cube
If you have an old keyboard lying around, you might as well make some use of it by doing something interesting. How about turn it into a QWERTY Rubik’s Cube! Matter fact we’ll go out on a limb and say do this even if you don’t have an old keyboard. Ha!
To complete this task you will clearly need a Rubik’s Cube and QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard can be from a desktop or a notebook. You will need some sort of glue. You could use crazy glue, a hot glue gun, possibly even Elmer’s. We wouldn’t recommend it, but if you’re out of glue, you could possibly use tape. You would probably stop this project after trying to attach ‘T’ or ‘Y’ to the rubik’s cube. (So…maybe don’t use tape).
Take off the keys of the keyboard and place them on a flat surface. Be sure to keep them organized and in QWERTY standard order.
If you have something greater than the typical Rubik’s cube, such as a 4 x 4 cube then expect to use a lot more keys.
Warning* – If you are using an old Rubik’s cube you will need to solve it before gluing the keys onto each square. (You probably just rolled your eyes).
If the Rubik’s cube is solved, begin pasting the keys onto the cube. If the keys are small, center them so that the color shows appearing as a border. This may not be possible for a desktop keyboard.
Please take a look at Instructables for more descriptive steps and alignment of the keys.
