Take a Walk on the Keyboard Carpet

Wii Fit, meet your match. A creative guy has come up with a room-sized, foot-controlled keyboard carpet.

The strip, as you’d expect, lets you step on letters to control your computer. Active, productive, and a lovely addition to any home. I’m sure every woman in the world will be thrilled when her significant other brings one of these into the living room.

Hackaday has a step-by-step look at the construction, and you can see more photos at the developer’s Flickr site. The guy’s got some other interesting-looking projects in the works there, too, including a glove with some kind of built-in switches and an odd invention I can’t quite figure out called the “Dog and Gong.”
