ADB-USB Wombat Input Converter
Use a modern optical mouse with your vintage Macintosh, or a retro ADB keyboard on your modern PC. An indispensable tool for Apple collectors.
ADB-USB Wombat is a bidirectional input converter for USB and ADB keyboards and mice. It works in two directions, connecting modern USB peripherals to a classic ADB-based Macintosh or Apple IIgs computer, or ADB peripherals to a USB-based computer running Windows, OSX, or Linux. The foreign keyboards and mice behave exactly like native peripherals, requiring no special software or drivers – just plug it in and go.
This is the Wombat main board. You will also need ADB and/or USB cables depending on your intended usage (sold separately).
