  • I dont see too many people running keyboards in car, here is an idea for you

    something I whipped up after getting a laptop keyborad from a buddy for free





    its black because the headliner and other visor are still "in progress" but hte keyboard is hooked up and fully functional, routed to the trunk through about 16 feet of ps2 cable.

    that's pretty tight, I like the idea. Was thinking of a way to have a keyboard in my car and I believe this is probably it. I have a junked out laptop myself, perfect! Thanks for the pics, awesome!

      many don't have a keyboard up there is because...

      It's very very very very uncomfortable to use... Try typing up a paragraph...no...a sentence with that and u wish there must be a better way to mount that thing...

      Other than that...nice setup.

            very handy but very unpractical.

            I wouldn't even want to type a word.

            It would be alright for quick commands like alt+tab or cntrl+alt+del and also esc. Anything more than that i couldn't stomach.

              Can you "Carpel Tunnel"!!! I just use my RF keyboard with built in touchpad for my 7 year old gateway destination.


              Also notice the up and down keys on the far right. Channel up and down, and volume up and down, along with a A/V onscreen menu to select source (DVD, TV tuner, Radio, VCR*not connected*) and it also has a set of IR repeaters that i can use to control basic functions of other devices with the keyboard, and several A/V inputs/outputs in RCA/S-video format. All of htis was available in 97ish when i bought this machine with a 27" monitor.

                      Sorry, I paid $2400 7 years ago for the entire setup. I also have "remote" with a track ball but couldn't find any pics of that. I could not find DVD's for several years after i had my pc. There is a destination on ebay for 40-50 bucks! Worth it! I was using mine as my whole house A/V server before i moved it to the car.

                        That's a cool idea. I agree, it's not too practical but might work out nicely if you use it only occasionally (and never while driving).

                          It's a nice install, but very darn hard to use.
                          I have one of those zippy usb keyboard and is under the passenger seat. When needed, I just plug it in put in my lap and type. But most the time, the passenger type for me.

                              This is my second one of these to see in a sunvisor. Very unpractical and even a silly modification to me.

                              If the sunvisor was removable, that is one thing b/c it would be a good way to have an "in car keyboard" (ICK) that is easy to stow away. Other than that, who types with their arms in the air? Maybe bodybuilders...
