Usually, retro-computing hobbyists attempt to hack and adapt new hardware to interface with older machines. The RetroConnector by Option8 does the opposite. It let’s you interface your Apple //c or //e keyboard with a modern device such as a PC or iPad.

Two models, both based on the PJRC Teensy (an Arduino clone), are available assembled for $35USD. Each is machine specific for the Apple //e or //c.
