Keyboard lighting

I want to share with you my example, as I did simple backlight keyboard for your favorite computer. This backlight does not shine in the eyes and has an electronic adjustment of the brightness of the glow. It can be connected both to the power supply unit of the computer itself, and to the bleeding power adapter.
