Wooden USB OTG





Introduction: Wooden USB OTG

About: hi, its zid, from kerala, India. i love the world of DIY-ers.. mostly work with electronics but recently i started using wood for my projects, for casing/housing mostly and I'm inlove ...

USB OTG (On The Go) is supported by many Smartphones to help you connect external drives, memory cards, pen drives,keyboards or mouse etc. to the smart phones through it's micro USB port. my OTG system was made of plastic and after few weeks of use, it broke so i designed a wooden casing for it with long lasting solder connection.
