With a design reminiscent of the Nintendo Power Pad, this DIY fabric keyboard seems to keep the basic idea down pat. Off come your shoes and in Tom Hanks fashion, you walk over to the letter you want to type and give it a tap.
It uses the popular Arduino processor to control the letters, which are made out of conductive fabric and perforated foam. The keyboard was found on Flickr user Maurin’s page and he certainly seems to be the crafty builder.
If only Fred Astaire could give this a try.
