Tetris comes to life2

When videogames come to life (fun videos)

Imagine that you’re pressing the buttons on your keyboard or on your touchscreen, or moving the little joystick on your game controller — but instead of controlling pixels and sprites on a screen, you’re controlling actual physical objects and actual human players in the physical world.

Will ‘The Minuum Keyboard’ live up to the hype?

It’s a simple concept: take the three rows of letters that constitute the QWERTY keyboard and consolidate them into one, then touch-type as you normally would.The software will then guess your intent, so you don’t actually have to hit the right letters.
