i was thinking of making something like this, where it'd be a midi
something that laid over existing keys or just above it and it would
project onto the keys rather than the keys being illuminated, so it'd
work with more boards. i've seen ones that you layover and they light
up but don't really project. obviously for the black keys it'd just be
the devices illumination, or maybe some think acrylic to layover and
edge light
