Do It Yourself Wood Keyboard Kit: Geeky or Geek Chic?

The Do It Yourself Wood Keyboard Kit should thrill all those of you who love DIY projects and wooden gadgets. I happen to think it would be a really fun project for geeks and design lovers alike. According to Engadget, the Hacoa DIY keyboard kits, are ready for pre-order for about $300. Would you buy one?

AWESOME! It'd go great with my computer case. It looks like an antique radio.

Cute but I wouldn't buy one. There are many other things I could use the $300 for.

I like the concept, but the fact of the matter is: I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hate this new wood + technology trend. It's so hypocritical--I can just imagine what the idiot who came up with this trend was thinking: "Okay...so wood and lithium batteries TOTALLY go together! YEAAAAAH!!!!" Which is funny considering that a lot of the technological items we have are HARMFUL to the environment. I also don't see the point in killing more trees just to make my computer/cell phone/whatever look snazzy. :/

i bet it would look cool after a year when the wood had absorbed your finger oils... imagine the keyboard plaque!

Wow! $300? What a great idea though. It reminds me of Scrabble tiles...and I LOOOOVE Scrabble. It actually sounds like fun to get to put it together too, I like working with my hands. I think I'll wait until it drops in price though...

$300 is pretty pricey. But I still think it's chic!

If it wasn't so expensive and if I didn't just have a laptop, I'd love it! I'm thinking about all the colors I'd paint it with... haha.

Ha ha, I don't know, kind of like it, but I don't think I'd want it for myself.

I like it ... but it's way too expensive and I'd be worried about the keys being stained from your fingers' natural oils.
