Hi This is my latest mod.
The Idea is not to hard, but I had a lot of work cutting down the small pins under the keys. And of course glue them on the cube.

For this cube I used 4 laptop keyboards. they where not completely the same, but very similar.
The sides shows different keys.

There is one key what is wrongly applied. I wonder who will find it first... (it is not on the Hungarian ABC sides)

FOUR laptop keyboards! This must be the most expensive custom mod ever done :lol:

Anyway, nice work. Are you going to make this available as a sticker set? You could also do ones for other sized cubes?

Sticker version? I don't think so. Not the same look and feel. Compare magazines with the real thing. You get the idea ... :P

It looks beautiful. I was tempted to buy it in Eindhoven. Bravo!

It wasn't so expensive, because I'm working now in a company who recycle many metal waste. And we also collect unusable electronic equipments as well. Thats how I get the keyboards. (Of course I could only keep the plastic keys. The rest goes for recycling)

If you want I can handle the rest silver keys to you, so you can use them for your cube...
I don't think it will be available as a sticker set.

I have the same keyboards in black, so the next plan is to make the same, just with white cube and black keys.
And also I have a bit larger keys, that I'm planning to use for 3x3x3 cubes.
Unfortunately there are no smaller keyboards, so I can't make it for larger order cubes.

is the six an upside down nine?
I'm not familiar with Hungarian keyboards but the parentheses shouldn't both be facing the same way

No, I used only one 6 number.
But almost... (One key is upside down, and like that it shows another letter)

I thought you found another "wrong" key, so I checked the puzzle again, and the M and W are different, so probably I made that right.

Another clue what makes it much easier to find:
It is located on the first picture.
