Another blast from the past. The keyboard of my CPM system, so heavy you could do serious damage with it. Each key base contains a magnetically operated Reed switch, while the magnets were sitting in the moving part. The Z80 SBC with SIO, PIO and 2k EEPROM running the show. Keyboard matrix completely re-wired to fit existing scheme. The function keys were specially configured to produce Wordstar text processor sequences. Data via serial RS232 line.
@chairraver I'll file these under "strangely satisfying photos"
@chairraver I absolutely LOVE the hex numpad, I've never seen that before!
@chairraver Love the "BullShit" keys for automatically typing marketing and press-releases.
