DJ's Apple II Pi Hack (Part 2/2)


Related Hardware Raspberry Pi

In this hack, I'll continue the Apple II conversion to the Pi. I created an Arduino PCB that converts the Apple II keyboard and 16 pin analog joystick to work with USB on Linux/Windows. There's key combinations for enabling different features, such as a "num lock emulator" that turns the keypad into a number pad. And a key combination that switches the joystick from being either a mouse or joystick mode. In this video I'll demo the new PCB and Linux Retro Pi install.
