Seems like there might be enough room for a usb 2 port hub/splitter (such as Onvian USB Splitter Cable Male to 2 Female Adapter USB) to add an additional usb dongle (such an RF or Insteon USB)? Can you confirm how much room there are?

Since it's a year old project, I forgot most of the dimensions, but from my memory, it would be possible since it's located in a little groove that can probably fit a wire or two. (You can see it in step one picture)
