Abstract

The invention makes keyboards visible in the dark by making the keys out of glow-in-the-dark ABS, ABA or any other plastic visible in the dark. The whole key surfaces could be made of the glow-in-the-dark plastic so that the keys are fully visible in the dark and the lettering is dark; or just the lettering could be made of the glow-in-the-dark plastic so that just the necessary features on the keys are visible in the dark. 1
