Huh!? Did someone say "backlit TI keyboard replacement"? Damn, what a concept! A new working keyboard that could pull power off the TI's intermal commector and have a decent ribbon cable too?

I wonder how many TI's could be put back into service?

Price seems like the biggest hurdle. I'd be comfortable around $50.00 but I have my doubts it could be done under $90.00 due to size, components and labor.

 

I have seen this done on other systems like the Atari and Amiga keyboards using a USB powered EL wire.  Since it's 5v it can easily be hooked up onto the existing TI power supply too...

 

something similar to this process.
