With v2.0 Mendel planned to be able to print conductive material, wouldn't it be possible to print out nearly everything necessary for a complete working keyboard? You would have to get a microcontroller and a usb cable or such, but the rest of the actual keyboard itself could be printed out. Although a couple of different types of plastic, or at least one that's flexible enough might be required.

"Planned" is the same thing as "printing". spinning smiley sticking its tongue out


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Watching "How It's Made" the other day, I saw that they were making the circuitry for a membrane keyboard by silk-screening conductive paint onto a plastic sheet.

It seems to me that attaching a conductive ink pen to a mendel, and using it to draw the circuit would be a pretty easy analog to silk-screen.

The difficult part would be placing and covering the membrane switches.
