One of the great things about my IBM keyboard database project is that I can use the data to pull off some cool things, and I like to find what I have here is one of them!
So, what can I do with this? Basically, you take a five-question quiz and the database will try to find IBM (and Lexmark, Unicomp, etc.) keyboard part numbers based on your answers. This is could be used for:
- Finding out if a particular style and function of IBM keyboard you want exists
- Reverse-searching a keyboard you know exists but don’t know any part numbers for
Feel free to have a go and let me know what you think! The most pressing issues at the moment are the options that aren’t illustrated with some pixel art and there are very few Model B(eam spring) part number results. As you may imagine, plugging the issues is time-consuming but good progress is being made. But for now, consider this as a tool for searching Model Fs and Model Ms more than anything. Also, it’s still a preview and subject to bugs. Please let me know if you come across any.
Cheers and enjoy!
