    Yes, but it'd be cheaper and easier to just to get a USB version off eBay ($16 shipped). Just search for 'USB folding keyboard' on eBay.

    If for some reason you still want to use the one you have laying around; You'll need a chip (MAXIM makes many) to convert the TTL levels used by your keyboard to RS-232 compatable levels. Then you'll need to make or port drivers to use the keyboard via the serial port.

      Fellowes makes a stowaway usb one that I ordered. Haven't received it yet, but it looks like it folds up to be tiny. Great for the glove box. It was $20 shipped off of ebay. I'll let you know how it works when I get it in.

          I've already had mine for awhile. Works well, except for one flex-cable is getting in the way of the left side closing when on a not completely flat surface (like a lap).

            stowaway

            I'm looking for dimensions on the stowaway keyboard extended...

            I found several keyboards on ebay but not the dimensions..

            Could any of you post the dim?

            Thanks

              Closed, the Stowaway is 3-9/16" at the widest point (it's curved on the sides) by 5" tall.

              Full extended and locked, it's 13-5/8" by 5".
