Turning a Keyboard into a Computer with Raspberry Pi

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 16th, 2012

This compact computer features a sturdy keyboard with a Raspberry Pi hidden inside–making it an all in one machine complete with a USB hub hidden in the keyboard.

Courtesy of German computer hobbyist Preamp, the build includes some clever rewiring of ports–such as shifting the Ethernet via a tiny patch cable–as well as some additions in the form of a USB hub. Hit up the link below for more pictures and a Google Translation of his build notes.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
