Ever since Apple introduce the first iMac, computer makers have been hiding PCs in monitors, giving the illusion that you’re just plugging a keyboard and mouse into a display. But one hobbyist has taken a different approach, by hiding a computer in a keyboard. Just plug in a mouse and monitor and you’ve got a fully functional PC.
Since the case is fairly roomy, it’s pretty easy to cut out holes for ports. And since the Raspberry Pi is about the size of a pack of cards… and doesn’t include it’s own case, it’s pretty easy to cram it inside the case.
The German hacker responsible for this project also hooked up some additional USB ports and made some extenders for the HDMI and Ethernet ports so they could be lined up on the back of the keyboard.
While this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a computer built into a keyboard, it’s a pretty clever, modern take on that idea.
