This year, I've been telling people that it's rude not to rewind YouTube videos when you're done watching them, so that they'll load faster for the next person.
Yes, the time of year when the April 1 arms race takes yet another chunk out of March 31.
It looks like they have the code to make it work with an arduino.
edit: edited to indicate it's real (instead of saying "may have built"). They aren't selling it, but you could build your own.
You could also see this as wasted effort, but they probably had a lot of fun working on it.
Everyone in here is joking about this being an "April Fool Joke", but this an actual device that can be created by anyone with the tools. This hardly classifies as a joke.
Adafruit has the joystick modules for cheaper for USA customers.
Given that it was built for humor and amusement, and that you can view stuff like the Washington Monument like a dick joke, I disagree.
Edit: here's their video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45gR-J0Yj6M
Happy April 1st, Japan.
T9 doesnt even come close!!!
I'm not sure they ever made it too far but I always wanted to get one.
The thing worked, and worked surprisingly well for single-hand typing (if, for example, you had an injury to the other paw). Trouble is, it cost more than a regular QWERTY keyboard, was slower (all those chording shift-states), and wasn't ambidextrous (left-handed and right-handed models had differing layouts, IIRC).
Rather the startup, absurd change the world with chocolate, city blocks, and radical version changes video.
Man, though, I would actually like to buy and use that!
