Did this video help you?

deven kimble: I did something like this but did it with all the keys and bought a personal wire that switches colors

TmanDaCool1: Windows users, we've copied (almost) everything from Macintosh. Now we're doing it again!

Clark LaChance: What is the music?

Gerrit-Jan: Does it work with a laptop?

The Yosefu Show: like if you liked the intro

Lana Graves: omg your a genious what school did you go to you must have a great job if not id bet your tons of fun with my imagination and your know how the world would be our handheld.

The Death Touch: I would make a backlit keyboard using a keyboard that doesn't have the windows NT,95,98,2000 logo.

ADITYA KN: do it at night man

Thom Valk: El wire is awesome.....

100roberthenry: buy a torch...lol.

Tayy Bee: Could you do a tutorial of this for a netbook or laptop? 

Sean DeMarco: How many feet of El Wire would I need for a keyboard mod?

alexisfaith1987: He did that on purpose.. If we want he cud have closed the window with curtain and turn the keyboard on.. anyway nice video..

peter olsson: damn that laggy camera :O 

999momak: just buy backlight keyboard they re not expensive and skip this video

joseph pulaski: looking for a lit up wireless keyboard

Ramy Haddad: would this work too with a wireless keyboard?

Yaato Mishima: HAhahaha...Nice one 

Joe Navarra: stupid sunshine... XD

The1stMachinist: Thank you so much for this easy mod. I've been looking for ways to to switch out my cherry mx with cherry mx led switches. this is much easier and much more affordable. I only wanted led switches for 1,2,3,4,w,a,s,d,esc. This will be just as good. I just found your channel a few months ago and love it. thanks again.

911ambulancegirl: OR you could just buy one for around $28... Hummm.

Tonny Cassidy: just buy a mechanical keyboard uses cherri mx switch it already have backlite out of a box

David Hallegraeff: i did this with my blackwidow!! 2 colors now XD

MrPacman64: how bout that snowball mic doh

scentor1942: I did this and it is awesome

Jordy B: You look like Karl Pilkington from the television program "An idiot abroad" on Discovery Channel, you realy do!

Dah Madao: Nice Video, but what about Laptop keyboards? Not every laptop has installed backlit keyboard

shubham biswas: I have build a workstation PC for web development, i dd different types of customize LEDs.. and i add ur project using green light and its looks great amazing....

Jasiek Błaż: crap i dont think itll work on my razer stuff :( 

φιλιππος πλατανιωτης: hey dont blame sunlight. XD

pojcharapol tosukowong: Just got new keyboard! With Changeable LED Colors and Dimmable Backlit Keyboard.

sak saka: you dont show how to put the wire in to home,end,insert and numbers in right side of keyboard..... you make hols to put it in the right side??????

73 SUPERGLIDE: i think k man for guys cant make things the others moms boys 

crunchbucket3: doing this does not light up the letters or numbers,in fact light in the gaps is really annoying---i got a real backlit keyboard and it does light up the letters and numbers but----i had to black paint the light membrane between the gaps to make it easy on the eye

Сергей Глинкин: Why i need a BACKLIT illumination - i need illumination for keys only!

nerdyeyes: Why not just wire (solder) up some LEDs to where the Scroll Lock LED light is supposed to be? That way, you get switching ability and its built-in.

Nyasgem Lófaszt: I think its a quite dumb solution. In the dark the light will blind you and you cant see the letters. The process of seeing is a simple method. Proper quantity of light needed as reflection from the sighted object. In this case the light comes from the inside of the keyboard, and the tops of buttons cant get enough light. 

xXTedwardXx ‏: im gonna do this BUT add translucent keys on it. So yeah. I guess sort of like a expensive keyboard huh :D

Juniper Chew: I think I need to BUY one, because there is NO WAY I can customise this on my own !!

robe rocks: cool

TF2GuidesandStuff: Don't know if I should do this I might break my keyboard (50$)

uaekiller2010: you are so genius

prince joshua: you are the one who makes a tpain effect

John Jones: WoW

ruben mattheus: What is the name of the background song

kendamaplaya: Cant do this with my Mac keyboard

China Bill: Clever

DARKRENGIN PRODT.: Thanks Man!!!! :) I plan this before but I don't know how to connect wires to power the LED's. LOL! :)

TheAzuradark: theres some reason to do this, caus many mechanical keyboard out there with good features but no backlit, so its pretty good for that

pivitman101: Where did you buy the el wire?
