Concept of the Lego Amiga keypad I am designing
« on: 24 June 2017, 18:56:21 »
Just working out how to make a Lego Amiga keypad.  ;D , I will probably be modifying the keypad I recieved as a gift on the Sensi Days in Holland. Might add some new paint to the keys though, now to figure out what paint to use ;-). The idea is to use Lego tape (unofficial) for the bottom, two sided to have a rubber surface so it won't skid.

Thanks djowger, that looks good :-) . Just tried if the 'crosses' on the keys I have would fit the Lego Technic, but too bad, just a little too large. I will figure something out though, might not go for the full Lego keys, because I really do like the feel of real keys when playing. Looks a bit slippery to use Lego, expecially with intens matches :P

Here is an update on my Lego keypad design :), although I will replace the gold and silver keys with the real keys I finished painting this week. Do want to feel a little bit of grip when playing ;-).

Just updated it with a better greenish color for the shadow of the net :-).

Why do u have space between directional keys? I Don't think it is such a good idea, since u tend slide fingers from one key to another, especially doing the Up/down switch

Well you have a good point there. I just checked and measured the design, and the locations of the keys are good; only thing I need to do is fill the 1x2 spaces between the keys with gold bricks. Yes, I need less bricks, since the keys are only for the concept and measuring the spacing. Thanks for noticing  ;D

Just finished painting the keys, from the keypad you gave me. I will put it to good use ;-).

Oh yes, and the ball can rotate, and the goalkeeper too.  :o

And now for the concept vs. the build Lego model for the keypad case (without keys). Well, I am also still waiting for the printed black pieces for the boarding. Will be here in probably a week I hope ;-).
