Each key is made of Technic axels that are connected together and each row of the key can be placed in perfect position by sliding the Technic connecters. To customize the look of keys Jason Allemann used the Lego stickers and Lego bricks that have been used over the years; for example the home key is a sloped roof peak, Scroll lock is printed tile of scroll, Windows computer screen for the Windows key, fingerprint sticker for PrintScr key etc. Moreover the keys have tactile feedback and can be attached or detached any time you want.
