The Awesome Button: a custom USB button How-To


A nice, simple How-to for repurposing the Staples Easy Button into a USB device. It can be connected to a computer and act like a keyboard or mouse, in this case automatically typing out a synonym for "awesome" when pressed. It uses a TeensyUSB, a spin off (version?) of the Arduino platform connected to the main switch for the button. I really like this hack because it's so simple and opens up a lot of possibilities.
