More progress on the NABU USB Converter

Post by masto »

Rev 1 of the circuit board is done and, to my surprise, it works. I made a low-effort video demo...



I will do another spin of this board with some mostly cosmetic improvements, but having this built is enough to let me start properly working on the software and an enclosure for it.

Noice!!! If you do a revision, throw the other 2 joystick ports on it for total of 4

So far I’m the only 4 port joystick keyboard. Well, except that “no social skills” guy who told me he has “the exact same keyboard” as me and yet to prove it lol. But yah, so I’m the only one so far - we need more 4 player keyboards :D masto, you’re our only hope!

Moar updates: got the joysticks working, and 3D printed a snazzy box.

Not really. That would involve almost starting over from scratch. Sufficiently motivated parties are welcome to fork the project. My goal is to put it to bed this week and find a new distraction.

I don’t even want this box for myself, it was just a fun thing to do and learn some stuff.

Nice little box!

I laughed at "although I'd be happy to take their money" and "I don't care. I'm not the boss of you."

:D

I really like this hack, and the USB keyboard one in general
