Matt Richards, a writer for Make Magazine, had a problem. His favorite word to use was “awesome.” He would put it in everything he wrote. He realized this and wanted to expand his vocabulary, but he wanted to have fun with it as well. So, he decided to make a button to help.
Matt hacked an “Easy Button” that you get from Staples into giving him synonyms for “awesome.” In this video, he shows you step by step, and explains what he did to make this brilliant idea work. I was so intrigued that now I want to go out and try it myself.
After I saw what Matt did, it got me thinking, maybe I could hack into the old Nintendo controller and turn it into something as awesome as The Easy Button.
