For MIST, Eclaire, 1088XEL - Atari 7800 PRO System Computer Keyboard

I never heard of this before now, but The Atari Museum lists The Atari 7800 PRO System Computer Keyboard:
http://www.atarimuseum.com/videogames/consoles/7800/7800keyboard.html

I am only assuming this keyboard was just a prototype? I was thinking how awesome it would be to have one for a FPGA Atari 8 bit or the 1088XEL.
I have DB9 joystick USB converters at the ready as well. You could even put in a 600/800XL keyboard. Anyone have one of these? Man I'd love a new XL keyboard to go with all the new projects.

It was just only a prototype, yes. And remember, there is no connection between 7800 and XL/XE computers, just the main facturer.
Just a computer and videogame lover :)

I was thinking of an adapter, but if it was just a prototype, a better route is to figure out a Teensy/KeyRah type of device with a 600xl/800xl case. Anyone know the whereabouts of the A8 molds? Man I wish they were remade. :)
