Hello there! I am attempting to use a laptop keyboard I just salvaged from a spare. I noticed the laptop keyboard has a ribbon connection. Further research has told me that the ribbon cable essentially just sents signals to a processor attached to the motherboard. In other words, I cannot use it conventionally. Or can I? I was thinking I could use a microprocessor such as the Raspberry Pi in order to act as the processor. I made a desk that houses my computer inside about a 15" gap between the plexiglass and edge. So if I cut it out and ream it a smidge, I could set the keyboard inside in order to use it with the keyboard. Thus making a keyboard that is integrated into my desk along with a computer. With that being said, am I wrong in my assumptions of this? If so, how does a laptop keyboard work? I attached a picture which makes it seem like it operates as a matrix. So is there any way to do that of which I am trying to do?
