I have an old IBM Model F keyboard, which uses an XT protocol. I also have a Model M, using the AT or PS/2 protocol. Neither of these are directly supported by any modern computers. I would love to use either of these keyboards on a modern-day machine. Being a cheap college student, I'd love to use my Arduino and learn more about the protocols while doing so.
After doing a little research, (and please correct me if I'm wrong) the Arduino cannot directly act as a USB-HID. At least any Arduinos with the FTDI chip. I'm not 100% sure about the Uno, but that's why I'm asking. I have come across V-USB from Objective Development, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to use that. It definitely requires a little bit more hardware than is currently available on the standard Arduino.
Is this even feasible? Does the Uno allow more control over USB, enough to make an Arduino an HID? Thanks!
