Parts

Of course you'll need a Non-ADB NeXT Keyboard but there's some other parts you'll need!
If you see that Adafruit has discontinued the Arduino Micro, no worries, they are stocked by other vendors. You can also consider porting the code to any number of Adafruit microcontroller boards with a couple of code changes.
You'll also need a MiniDIN-5 connector for the keyboard. We used this one from DigiKey

Finally, this lovely Altoids tin will do a great job of holding it all

Tools!

You'll also want a soldering iron, solder, wire strippers, a rotary tool (to cut into the tin) and maybe some double-sided foam tape.
