[10p6] wonder what Atari would look like if it used a standardized keyboard on its 16 bit and 32-bit computer lines in 1985. Imagination is interesting, but building things is better, so they began to create such things. Enter the general yadali keyboard box.
The shell design is flexible and can accept the keyboard of yadali st and falcon. The keyboard can then be used with Atari mega, TT or desktop Atari computers without mods. It also applies modern peripherals to these old Atari platforms, using two onboard joystick ports while using a modern USB mouse. Both power supply and soft LED lamps are available, but they are cleverly hidden under the shell and can only be seen when emitting light. It also includes 5-watt stereo speakers to take full advantage of Atari’s audio hardware.
The last part has a total length of 473mm and adopts resin 3D printing with high surface finish. The result is very good. It looks like a real factory keyboard.
If you often use Vintage Atari machines and you want a great keyboard to use them, this may be the design for you. [10p6] promised to upload the design documents to thingiverse soon for those who are eager to copy the work.
We also saw the conversion of the vintage yadali keyboard into a modern machine. Video after break.
