    I am making a portable computer using a raspberry Pi. I found this keyboard: http://ebay.eu/1CVvcHc but it is a Bluetooth one. Is there any circuits that can convert the interface to USB. (Sorry if the question is to computer-based but this is the only forum that sort of fitted this question) I wnt to do this as the bluetooth is a waste of power and another thing to go wrong

    Thank yoy

    Yes and no...
    It looks like it includes a mini USB cable, but it appears to be for charging.
    You may have to rely on using a bluetooth usb dongle, or you can buy the device anyway, break it open and see if there is something on the board you can tap into. (not likely)
