    Hi, welcome to Android Forums.

    Although I have not tried to do this, I don't see why it can't be done. There are BCN to standard USB adaptor cables available on eBay and no doubt in retail outlets such as Radioshack and Maplin. Couple one of those with a USB OTG cable and theoretically it can be done. I would certainly seek advice from somewhere like Radioshack or Maplin.

    Information on USB pinouts is also available so it would be possible to make up your own cable - not that easy, but possible. Twenty years ago I would have done it but it would be a right pain in the proverbial with my eyesight now !

    Making the physical connection is one thing, but getting them to communicate could be a problem.

    Hope this helps and good luck.
