Will do!

Yes, someone happened to have one on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/302169367965

An Apollo keyboard and mouse also shouldn’t be hard to emulate with something like an Arduino and a PS/2 keyboard and mouse; the combination speaks a sensible and documented TTL serial protocol, and the 7-pin DIN connector can be obtained easily. The biggest difficulty would be mapping a PS/2 keyboard reasonably to all the special Apollo keys.
