If you've seen flexible keyboards for sale, you might have thought it was a great idea, but the price is a bit much, and it might not have a layout that you like.  Hack a Day comes to your rescue, with steps on how to make your own flexible keyboard, simply by disemboweling a normal USB keyboard and taping letters onto the membrane.

"The instructable says to get a USB keyboard (it looks like a Dell USB keyboard to me), gut it and label the flexible

membranes inside after you join them together. If you've got a supply of this style of keyboard, it could be a cheap

source... or better yet, maybe you can use the guts to produce high quality custom keybads."
