Hacking a USB Keyboard

Featured

Step 1: Open up the keyboard

Picture of Open up the keyboard
Open up the case. You can use a screwdriver or an any ridiculous looking multi-purpose tool. Sometimes even after all the screws are removed the keyboard still won't open up. In this situation, don't worry, just forcefully pry the case apart with your screwdriver. It doesn't matter if you break the case. You don't really need it.

HOW ARE THE "ALT" AND "SHIFT" KEYS IMPLEMENTED?  THESE SIGNALS ARE NOT SEEN BY MY COMPUTER IN ANY WAY BUT PRESSING THE GOD DAMN SHEETS OF PLASTIC TOGETHER!!!

Be careful of screws hidden behind labels. I undid all visable screws and then ripped the case appart. There were three screws hidden under a label and I ended up damaging one of the electrical components inside.
