That would make it much easier to integrate it in a pc card cabinet. I have
searched for wired usb touchpads and trackpoints. 
I have not found any.

I have bought one 7usd bluetooth small keyboard. It
appears to have a touchpad too. I cannot say how
difficult it will be to modify it to a wired usb keyboard.

There is the https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/images/Pyra-Main.png
cabinet. If the 3d printer cad files are free software.
