Convert your Amiga keyboard to USB

If you have a spare Commodore Amiga 500 computer or a 1000 or 2000-series keyboard and an Arduino – you’re in luck. With Arduino forum member “olaf’s” details you can program the Arduino board as a USB human interface device and thus use it to interface the keyboard with any contemporary system that uses a USB keyboard. Or with the same project you could connect two digital (DB-9 interface) joysticks to the same PC. 

So if your Commodore is no longer keeping up with you, click here to re-purpose the keyboard. And for more, we’re on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
