Edit: What I'm looking for is some kind of library which could be used with an arduino to read the HID protocol output from the Data+ and Data- cables of the USB.
========== If I cut the cable of a usb keyboard, plug in power and ground can I use the clk and data wires to read keystrokes into the Arduino? If so any pointers to libraries and schematics?
Simple I instructions? The "for dummies" version?
Following some of the suggestions below I found this:
Which looks like what I want to do, basically hook up the lines into the arduinio and read from the keyboard using the HID protocol in this library.
That doesn't do what I want. Does anyone know how this could be accomplished?
