Megadrive/Genesis clone with a keyboard?

Post by cdoty » Wed Feb 18, 2009 6:17 am

Are there any Genesis/Megadrive clone system that have a keyboard?

After seeing this project, http://playpower.org/, I wondered if it would be possible to use a Genesis/Megadrive clone instead of a NES clone.
The Genesis might be nicely suited to educational games.

There are few SMD clones with keyboard, like this one: http://magicgame.ru/catalog/sega_md/id-968/index.html

They were discussed on this forum, as far as I remember.

Couple years ago I've been attach standard PS/2 keyboard to MD via joystick port #2 (using #EXT interrupt!). It is not a big deal.

Maybe a 2D version of Typing of the Dead? :D

Less than $50 (around 35-45 depending from model).
