Keyboard Mouse Input

For hard core keyboard users it can sometimes be tedious to move the hand back and forth between the mouse and the keyboard, just to perform simple pointing tasks.

This demo, based on KeySteer : Multidirectional Pointing Input Using A Mechanical Keyboard by Byungjoo Lee, Haesun Park and Hyunwoo Bang, shows how the keyboard can be used as a mouse. Pressing keys on the keyboard creates a direction vector from a center point on the keyboard, defining the movement of the cursor.

Happy pointing!
