I've had this old PET Commodore keyboard for nearly a decade, so I made it a matching keyboard.

Very cool!  Ahh, the fond memories of wrist cramps, while enjoying my PET 2001.  However, I am kind of shocked to see one of these without the key-cap stickers nearly worn blank and starting to peel off. :-)

It was a good find when I got it. I had originally planned on using it on a home brew CPU project, but lost steam in wiring it up, so it just lives in logisim. 

It's funny, I'm using a Teensy with basically 100x the power of the original computer to act as the matrix decoder and USB HID driver... Times have changed :)
