IBM Model Pi

The "IBM Model Pi" by u/rengarett is simply a Model M converted via a Pi Pico and KMK.
Published June 12, 2022

There are several ways to convert an IBM Model M. Gracjan Górecki aka rengare wanted to be able to use layers with his board and chose the Pi Pico and KMK way.

I bought an IBM Model M [...] In the meantime I was building my own keyboard so a thought comes to my mind, maybe I can add a Pi Pico to the model M.
