Modify Top Case to act as Keyboard/Trackpad?

Is it possible to modify a MacBook so that is works simply as a keyboard/trackpad for another Mac (connected either via USB or Bluetooth)? I'm trying to do exactly what's shown in this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FueCMR-3G...

I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The topcase connector is only a kind of an usb connector

  • 20 Vss Supply Ground (-)
  • 21 D+
  • 22 D-
  • 23 Vdd Supply Voltage (+)

"connect" (glue, chewing gum, soldering what ever) a usb cable to the topcase and you have your keyboard
