Larry at Palm Is Life is my hero!
Evidently I wasn’t the only one that wasn’t thrilled with the blue backlights in the Hermes keyboard. But instead of just mentioning it in a review, Larry did something about it!
Once again he has cracked his Hermes’ hood and tinkered until things were exactly as he wanted; Once again, he has worked magic.
Take a look…
Here is the Hermes with it’s blue backlight. It’s pretty, but not so easy on the eyes.
There’s lots more photos of the cracked Hermes in Larry’s article, but here’s a taste…
And here is a closeup of him working with the two different colored LEDs.
This final picture shows the result of his work, and will you just look at what’s on the left side screen? A shout-out to Gear Diary readers! Holla!
Be sure to read all of the details of Larry’s latest modification at Palm Is Life; he never ceases to amaze me with his mad modding skills. Now I have to wonder what he will do to top this!
**Larry has asked that I state for the record that he is no relation to Leisure Suit Larry of Amiga gaming fame. ha!
