Do you want a sneaky place to hide your password list, spare money, or other small paper items right by your computer? Today’s DIY video shows you how to create a thin compartment in your keyboard to hide those small paper items in ‘plain sight’.
Sure, anyone can store stuff in a broken keyboard... the real challenge is doing it and keeping the keyboard fully functional...
I'm struggling to see why you'd do this, especially as it involves disabling the numeric keypad. I find I use the numeric keypad a lot on my keyboard, so I wouldn't want to disable it (plus if someone touches the keypad, they're going to realise something's up).
Anyway, my external keyboard is an Apple Wired Keyboard, so you'd struggle to fit anything in there!
This seems a little more useful: drive bay drawer. I used to have on on my LAN party machine; I'd keep little essential stuff in there.
Or this: the rock safe
I lived in a house once that had a floor safe embedded in the concrete floor. We didn't even know it was there until a few months before we moved out. Never did find out what the combination was.
I am thinking of doing that in my current house as a place to stash some small valuables: a few hundred bucks in cash, passport, etc. (Okay, I'm such a geek that I accidentally spelled cash "cache". No, it's money not super-short term storage. Although this is a cache for cash... Oh, my head hurts!)
I think you must be really bored!
stupidest thing I ever saw
