Submission + - USB NeXT Keyboard with an Arduino Micro (adafruit.com)

coop0030 writes: "Ladyada and pt had an old NeXT keyboard with a strong desire to get it running on a modern computer. These keyboards are durable, super clicky, and very satisfying to use! However, they are very old designs, specifically made for NeXT hardware:, pre PS/2 and definately pre-USB. That means you can't just plug the keyboard into a PS/2 port (even though it looks similar). There is no existing adapter for sale, and no code out there for getting these working, so we spent a few days and with a little research we got it working perfectly using an Arduino Micro as the go between."

Coding is easy; All you do is sit staring at a terminal until the drops of blood form on your forehead.
