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.
