Lego artist Jason Allenmann’s latest creation is a fully functional keyboard. That may not sound terribly impressive but the level of creativity and his clever use of select blocks is certainly worthy of praise.

Under the hood is a traditional circuit board and sensor pad from a standard keyboard but the exterior is made completely out of Legos. Allenmann said the biggest challenge was to interface the Lego keys with the sensor pad but perhaps even more interesting are the choices he made for the keyboard keys.

Instead of using custom-printed tiles or stickers, the creator stuck with printed tiles that Lego has officially released over the years. This meant he had to get pretty creative with some choices. For example, he used a roof for the Home key, a tile with a photo of a scroll for the Scroll Lock key and a tile with a mini baseball cap for Caps Lock.
