Apple II numpad goes USB

Yet another USB upgrade to a retro device. One that can only be described as "Key remap insanity."

This job took alot of fiddling around trying to remove all the old conflicting traces, but it happened. (thanks to my friend Rue Mohr).
Then the task of figureing out "what was what" on the USB board, aswell as the hair mess remap. when everything was said and done, the keypad was used to control a parallel port driven robot at a small fair in Gibsons BC.

Enjoy this project?

Well the keyboard controller was one just LION around. so that was a job
finding out what key where at what column and row pins (specially
finding crtl and alt) we used some program on linux that dumped the hex
signals the board was sending. showkey i think it was :)
