Keyboard With Full Repair and Refurbish Design

The Ultimate Hacking Keyboard has an interesting design and will be sold based upon the ease with which it can be customised. It also has the attractive trait of being easy to disassemble, repair and refurbish, in fact, the individual components and circuit board are even embossed with information on how to repair and disassemble them.

Traditional electronics are not designed with end of life in mind. They have proprietary fastenings, highly valuable parts soldered together and displays that are irreparable and often even irreplaceable.

The Ultimate Hacking Keyboard goes down a radically different route. Its fully modular and each key even contains data, which will provide information on when individual parts need to be replaced.

It’s an example of electronics equipment that can be designed with material and component end of use in mind.
