Acorn BBC Micro type 1 keyboard
|Device||Acorn BBC Microcomputer “Type 1” keyboard|
|Switch||Futaba simplified linear|
I presume that I salvaged this keyboard from a dead computer. I did have a really nice keyboard with a broken spacebar that I set aside for repair one day, but I ended up giving away that computer without remembering why I was keeping it! I will never know now if that was SMK or PED.
One intereresting characteristic of these AWC-made keyboards is that the stabiliser wire clips fit either onto or around the switches. Presently I do not know which, but maybe one day I’ll remove one of them and see what they’ve done.
