Don't think so, you can see the cables leaving the housing as a big strand.

Couldn't you do a I2C similar to the lets split directly on the teensy?

I moved to Poland a while ago and wanted to make my own keycaps - things needed for this are a little harder to come by in the EU especially in Poland as I found out first hand. I create a work log pointing out where to find things, what to buy etc. https://deskthority.net/workshop-f7/keycap-making-...
