Black Typer

Project Description

BLACK TYPER is an interface and a set of programs that allow using a MSX computer as a USB keyboard and/or gamepad.

Thanks to this interface we can bring that old, no longer used MSX computers back to life, giving us the opportunity to get the same feelings that we enjoyed with our first computer, while using a modern system.

  • Tablets and Smartphones.
  • Game consoles (PlayStation, Wii, Xbox)

  • Any device to which an USB keyboard can be connected.
  • Keyboard/Joystick for emulators.
