    Default MacBook Topcase as USB Keyboard/Mouse?

    Hopefully this isn't a really stupid question with an answer that is "Of course not!"

    Wondering if anyone has taken the topcase (keyboard and mouse) of a MacBook and used it as a USB keyboard/mouse for their computer.

    This person on YouTube seems to have done it: YouTube - MacBook Topcase modded to external USB keyboard and mouse

    Is it just as simple as soldering usb wires onto the topcase's ribbon?

    I would also love to know how to do this. Plan to get an iMac in a few weeks, but would much rather use a trackpad than a physical mouse.

    So I guess I should ask to the original poster - did you figure this out?
