This is an adapter board to connect your EEE keyboard to a Teensy 2.0 - making it into a USB keyboard. It's generally useful if you have a small EEE keyboard and you'd like to turn it into a small embeddable USB input device. Moreover, it's indispensable if you're interested in hacking on your EEE PC and replacing the motherboard with something more modern (like a Raspberry Pi).
This board was designed as part of the EEEoma project, which has reverse-engineering and conversion of an EEE PC 701 motherboard to the EOMA-68 CPU card as its technical goal, main goal being promotion of the EOMA68 standard among hobbyists.
Q: Is it possible for you to design an adapter board for my laptop's keyboard?
A: Yes. Message me with info about your keyboard - photo of the backside&frontside (where all text on the stickers is readable, with zoomed shots if necessary), as well as info on the laptop it came from. I'll agree to work if I can find schematics for your keyboard connector, in which case you'll also have to make some measurements of the keyboard flex connector and send them to me. Then, I'll be able to deliver a custom-made adapter to you =) The price is not going to be more than $50 for all the work&hardware including regular tracked shipping from Latvia - not including the firmware adjustments, which you'll have to do yourself (as it'd require me to have the keyboard in order to do it). You'll have to be OK with all the resulting work from my side being open-sourced, as well as potentially sold again afterwards as a product on this store.
Q: Will there be other products reverse-engineering the EEE PC?
A: Yes, absolutely. Next goal is likely going to be power/battery management.
Q: Will it be compatible with my laptop's keyboard?
A: Unlikely (though possible). Message us with your keyboard's details to see if we can help you somehow =)
