Storage DIY a LEGO Micro SD card reader for Samsung Galaxy Tab

Hi,

I recently put an USB OTG cable for Samsung Galaxy Tab and a tiny microSD card reader into a LEGO brick. This is the connector I use:



And this is the look of the tiny microSD reader:



I took it apart:



And solder it to the connector:



Then, put it into a LEGO brick:



Here is the final look:



The top view of the connector:



Compare its size to a 5-in-1 USB memory card reader:



I also post more information on my English blog.

Thanks for watching, have fun :)
