I've had some keyboards that were _bought_ that way!  :-)

Or actually they used some kind of conductive paint,  on clear mylar (?) 
plastic.  I'd bought two of these at one time,  and used the heck out of one,  
left the other sitting in the box in the closet,  but they both deteriorated 
at about the same rate it seemed.
