Cool hack reminds me of the 80s

Modder extraordinaire Ben Heck has crafted a very cool keyboard project for his $35 Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi is a cheap little computer that is designed to run free open-source operating systems. Heck used the BBC Micro keyboard for inspiration and built a wooden enclosure with hinges on top.

Heck also added Ethernet connectivity, and on off switch, video/audio composite outputs, 5 V DC input, and USB hub protection peripherals. The machine also has an experimentation kit that uses a little at onboard and the C++ programming language.
