Yeah, I don't care about the system, but those keyboards - a big YES! :)

Just another “Two Guys & A Baby” Kickstarter “Money For Nuthin & You’re Chicks For Free” bunch of BS. Pure Effing Phantasy! The whole “freezer to dinner table” of this is mind boggling! Not to mention, asking for the Amiga community’s input will kill it before you can even say “Copyright”! :roflmao:

Calling this a 'new amiga' is really quite deceptive and very much click-bait.  I like the idea of the keyboard though, especially if it could take a pi or other similar board.

The Keyboard I would love, the rest is of no interest (well maybe empty PSU case for something else)

Two more weeks...

I do like the keyboard, though...especially if it could be made to adapt connect to the old big box Amigas via a native cable, instead of USB.

I agree with the general consensus. The keyboard and mouse look sweet, the Raspberry Pi in-a-brick seems rather pointless.

Labeling it "Amiga" is asking for problems from the resident Amiga trademark-vulture population. This is not like the Nintendo or even C64 trademarks, where there's a clear owner of the trademark - it's unclear who you'd even ask for permission to use the Amiga trademark...

Well Philippe Lang got green light from Amiga Inc to use the logo on the new A1200 cases, so might be the same route for these keyboards i guess.

And then, of course, the original Amiga logo. So we are working out a deal to use it.

With whom? (the question that will not be honestly answered by anyone)

licensed Kickstart Roms

From whom? (another question that will not be honestly answered by anyone)

I admit that amiga tank mouse with wheel is interesting idea but the visualisation on that page is complete crap that would not work at all. these guys have never heard of ergonomics.

Much like the mayority here: just give me the keyboard.

No need for the emulator. We already have them, and they are extremely good.

Don't we have enough ways/gadgets to emulate the Amiga?

Put a Vampire stand alone in the keyboard with the needed I/O ports and you've got a winner.

Wow - nice to see that I am not alone in the "I want Amiga keyboard" wagon!
