Hi I wanted to post this thread to let people know in the Amstrad CPC community that our Kickstarter has now launched:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/simulant/retro-computer-inspired-usb-pc-keyboards-and-mice-by-simulant

I've also added a page to the Wiki but I'm not sure how we get this on the "News" on the main page if at all possible please? There is a higher res graphic of the design there too:

Thanks for any support or backing :) Please spread the word!

Nice idea! Would love to see the 6128Plus keyboard too. Or at least the CPC6128. Also 664 could be a beauty.

Thanks for the support :) Yes those would also be lovely. I'll see how this campaign goes and we'll add what we can and if we can if there are enough backers and demand. Thanks again and please help spread the word if you can :)

Good luck, it looks like a generic keyboard with some coloured keys.

Hi thanks, yes it is a PC keyboard as we say in the project but just has clean design with better colour scheme for us retro fans! A better alternative for retro computer users than a lot of the black or generic keyboards out there (or strange looking gamer ones hehe) :) Thanks for the support
