Wireless networked AT keyboard

Posted on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011 in Arduino, hacks, wireless by the machinegeek

Creative technology student Pieter Pelt and Hybrid Worlds present this project detailing how to connect an old AT style computer keyboard to a PC via Arduino and Xbee modules and using the Teensy PS2Keyboard library.

Using Xbee allows for keyboards which are not only wireless, but also networked so that several keyboards can be meshed together and routed to one PC. Now that could make a collaborative coding project interesting!

All code can be found on the Hybrid Worlds project page at bottom of page (top of page refers to a different wireless chip, the nRF24L01.)
