Wow, what a work of art. Writer Mary Robinette Kowal modded her laptop so that the keyboard would resemble keys on an old-fashioned portable typewriter. This looks so touchable! I wonder how she managed to ensure that the stickers won't fade with lots of fingertip action, maybe a layer of clear plastic sticker over the printed and hand-retouched bits? Meticulously documented here: Link. (Update: ruh-roh, we brokeded the website! It's down as of 9pm PT 7/5/07, no doubt from too much traffic. I'm sure it'll resurrect soon enough). (Thanks, John)
