KEYSPY Keyboard Data Logger

Not that I am suggesting you use this for illegal purposes… But there is something about the power of a key logger that is cool.

“The KEYSPY is a hardware keyboard logger that can record keystrokes from a PS/2 keyboard and send them back to the PC at any later time. It consists only of a PIC16C84 microcontroller, an EEPROM (24C32 up to 24C512) an analog multiplexer 4053 and a few resistors. A great advantage of the KEYSPY compared with software keyloggers is that it will also log bios passwords or show that someone tried to access the computer with a DOS boot disc. The used EEPROM (24C64) has a capacity of 8KB and can store about 8000 keystrokes.”
