Hack A USB Hub Into Your Keyboard

USB hubs can be a great way to organise your cables, but you still have to find a good place to tuck away the hub. To create a little more desk space, hacker and blogger Michael decided to shove a USB hub directly into his Logitech keyboard.

The post outlines doing this with a specific Logitech keyboard, but any large plastic keyboard will work. The process requires you take apart the keyboard and the hub. Once disassembled you can see where the hub will fit and cut holes into the keyboard for the USB ports. In this example, he rewires the keyboard into the USB hub with solder so it all works as one cohesive unit. You can find the full guide to do this for yourself on Michael’s blog below.
