Is it possible to use a standard PC USB keyboard with the visor?

No, the Visor is a slave only USB device.

More Information


First, the Visor has its own proprietary USB connection, but even with an adapter and software it won't work since the Visor's USB system is in slave mode.

Being a slave the Visor can not communicate with other slave devices (like USB keyboards).

However, someone could make an adapter which accepts the USB keyboard, and using some circuitry converts the data stream into something the Visor can understand.
