I have been twiddling my thumbs waiting for Diablo 4 and I got the idea to “snaz” up my keypad controller. I have a neat little light up KeebMonkey Megalodon pad, and I had some clear two piece keycaps. So I made this:
Most keycaps seem to be made out of “laser unfriendly” plastics, so I wanted to try inserts for the clear caps. I tried veneer and paper and while they looked okay, they really didn’t let the light through. Eventually, I settled on mylar, spray painted black on one side.
