CoCo3 CoCoMECH keyboards!

Recommended Posts

I have been out of the CoCo scene for a few years, but recently made a trade in order to own a CoCo3 again. I am still waiting for that computer so it is going to be some time before I can mess with it again.

 

So, while I was waiting I decided I needed a CocoSDC of course. When I went to purchase one I found Ed Snider (Zippster) actually created a drop in replacement keyboard (a few styles) for the CoCo3. And they are mechanical! There was one left so I jumped on it.

 

It arrived today and man what a thing of beauty. I wish all vintage computers could get this treatment. Just superb. I cannot wait to finally get my CoCo3 and try this bad boy out!

And I found the project page really interesting:

Welcome back to the coco community, I will one day get one off those Mech Keyboards, I got to catch up with a fellow coconut who has one in his coco 3 unit and I agree they are a sweet beauty.
