GH60 Satan with HIDDEN USB THUMBDRIVE IN THE CASE!
« on: Mon, 29 January 2018, 22:54:03 »
Hi All,

I'm new at this.  I dont even know if I am posting in the correct place. I apologize if i am not and hopefully you will direct me to the correct place.

I'm posting because I am building a GH60 Satan keyboard.  I haven't received all the parts yet.  I was daydreaming about how I am going to build the keyboard and I got a crazy idea to hide a USB thumbdrive under the keyboard.  I want to wire it so that when you plug in the keyboard, it looks like just the keyboard is connected...but actually, there is a keyboard and thumbdrive connected to the computer. 

To achieve this, I wanted to buy a octopus usb hub, disassemble it for space saving.  Then directly connect it to the PCB.   

this is a link to the usb hub that i was thinking about putting inside the case and wiring it to the pcb of the keyboard.

I am using a datamancer wooden case.  there appears to be plenty of room in the case for something like this to work.  What do you guys think?  Is it possible?

Thanks, I had a feeling that this wasn't the correct board. Thats is why I put the little disclaimer in the beginning.
