In November 2012, I created a simple installation called Magic Keyboard. At the time, the project was only running on my laptop and wasn't ready to be opened on any device.
In November 2015, thanks to Moment Factory's post, the prototype gained a lot of interest for a week. A lot of people seemed to be willing to try it at home, and I was surprised by the amount of fun and on point reactions. Some redditers actually gave some great ideas for pushing the concept.

It had been a long time since I wanted to make an opensource project that would allow people to create something together at home. So I took some time and gathered the elements to make this happen in the webbrowser. The installation had to be as simple as possible with just a quick drag and drop calibration.
Fun fact, Feross Aboukhadijeh from Reddit created another website exactly when I was building Keybright with the same principle.
I am currently building new variations and games alongside the standard keyboard installation.
My goal is to build a DIY happy alternative to existing videogames with a physical/digital experience at home rather than just a 16/9 screen. Imagine a battleship game with 2 keyboards !
The project is also opensource on Github and you are more than welcome to contribute.
