    Tt Kb/Mouse Mod Stealth Worklog [Completed]

    Hi,
    this is the worklog of my Thermaltake KB/Mouse project "Stealth".

    Here are some pictures:

    Originally I thought to make the keyboard cover removable, but now I think I will make it open automatically with a servo and a microcontroller.

    Here are two different ideas of the mechanism I want to build, have to verify which is the best.





    the gray thing is a support that will be placed in the mid of the cover
    and the video of the animations:



    These are the servo I have tested


    the smaller one is too weak and the bigger probably won't fit inside the keyboard, so I have to buy a small and strong one.

    video of the circuit controlling the servo with a pic16f84, the circuit will be powered by the 5V taken from the USB port with no additional cables.



    That's it, now I need the keyboard to take the exact measures,
    see you soon.

    If the small servo seems too weak, perhaps try a gear design instead of an actuator arm?

    Hi all,
    after a long wait, time for an update.

    Today I've received this package from Thermaltake:




    there were only the two mouse in it, no keyboard, I guess that has been shipped in a separate package.

    couldn't wait to try it.


    and night shots.



    That's it for now, will do something tomorrow.

    We just did a review of that mouse at Device Unknown. Over consensus is... we love it.
    Did you find the right servos yet?

    Why two mice?
    1 is for the mod, the other is the prize merch, I'm guessing it was sent that way to save time n money. It's a conservative approach that works imo The only other part is at the end of the contest, when the final part, the cash prize level, is determined. Regardless we get the kb's and mice, so it makes sense for them to do it this way.

    Yes I found this servo:


    it's small as the one I have, but is 4 times powerful and is also 25% stronger than the big one, so this should be able to open the cover.

    quick update:
    I did this paper fins to use as refernce to cut the acrylic pieces.




    now I'm trying to figure how to take apart this mouse without breaking it, there are no screws on it!
