I don't think this would work on a modern computer, but I want it...

I found this keyboard on ebay today:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-1395665-Mechanical-Model-M-Clicky-Keyboard-RJ45-Connector-/111605149447?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19fc2f6f07

 

Since it uses an RJ45 connector, I don't think a modern computer can connect to it without drivers, but then again I've never tested it out. Nevertheless, I really want to buy one and try it. It is a mechanical keyboard with clicky keys, and the vendor says that it is in usable condition, but it would still be a frivolous buy. Anyways, it has a reset key where the control key should be, and I don't think it would relay the same signal as control when pressed. Still interesting insight into the past, though. Here are some pictures.

I personally wouldn't even use it. I'd hang it up on my wall as decoration. 

 

Look at my antique keyboard that still works(I think it does at least)! Oh and I'd take the key caps off and clean that thing lol.
