T6x keyboard to USB/BT controller board

#1 Post by vavet » Fri Oct 12, 2018 4:55 am

Hi
I am looking for a controller board to use the t61 keyboard via USB or bluetooth.
There used to be a board available at
https://www.tindie.com/products/rampadc ... eceptacle/
but not available anymore.

any help in finding one is appreciated.

Besides Lenovo or IBMs USB keyboars, your only option would be to create your own.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

I remember reading about that board a while ago, unfortunately it wasn't available to buy anymore.

I reckon a Kickstarter project like this would gather quite serious following and investors there. Too bad I lack the necessary skills to do something like this.
Laptops after the 4:3 aspect ratio era are non-existent to me.

Contact forum-member nitrocaster, he seems to have great knowledge about such things.
