I returned the original keyboard and bought following items:

- USB hub (4€)


- Keyboard (20€)



- Set of one right and one left angled microUSB extension (10€ for both together)


- miniHDMI (left angled) to normal HDMI (7€)

Well, nothings free :P
How do you plan to power the pie? It will be a bit uncomfortable having a power cord going to a keyboard :P

It will just be powered using a micro USB power supply. I will put a micro USB jack on the outside together with a few USB ports and standard HDMI.

Great news!
The new keyboard has arrived and its just awesome. It feels great, it looks great and the quality is awesome.
It has a ton of free space inside and the buttons feel good.

I will not put the jacks inside of the keyboard anymore but I will bring the cables outside. It will have standard HDMI for video, 3 USB ports and micro USB for power.

This is the new USB hub (9€):

Yea, I am still waiting for everything to arrive. The hub and the Pi are still not there yet.
As soon as everything's there I will start building it and making the guided tutorial with photos, links and everything else that is required to build it :)

Hopefully you don't run out of space again this time. It would be cool if you could recreate some sort of clone of older machine. One thing I wonder, though, is if a RPi Zero requires ventilation for heat? Wouldn't putting it inside an enclosed space such as the inside of a keyboard cause overheating?

Great!
Well my Pi has not arrived yet as the online shop still does not have them in stock. But all other parts have arrived so far and work fine. I can't wait to start with the build and the tutorial :)

If it is anything like the B+ or 2B, then it doesn't generate a lot of heat, especially not as long as it is not under high loads for a long time. A few small holes drilled in the plastic near the CPU to allow a bit of air circulation will probably be enough.

Well the preorder site I ordered it on 14/12/2015 says it's sold out. I'll have to see when they ship me my item.
