Can I cut the end of a computer keyboard power cord and connect a USB cord to it?
I just got into electronics and I really like LEDs. I started looking around the house for some, but I might just go buy brand new ones. Well, I still have my old computer and I took apart the keyboard for LEDs. Instead of trying to take the LEDs out of it, I decided to keep everything together. The power cord is connected to the other board thing (a motherboard or baseboard?) It is one of the kind that have the 6 long pieces that makes a circle-like shape. I want to know if I can make that end a USB.
I see that in this image this is something that I want to do. But everything from the keyboard is still connected. I hope I am explaining this clearly enough.
