Ever find it burdensome to swipe through the different types of emojis on a smartphone? Well, an attempt to make a life-size emoji keyboard will make you appreciate that setup much more.

Tom Scott, a programmer from London, shows off an emoji keyboard made up of 14 keyboards with more than 1,000 stickers on top of each key that are hooked up to one laptop.
