Overflowing With Awesomeness? Then You Need This AWESOME Button

Every time I hear the word "awesomeness", I think of Barney Stinson from the hit comedy How I Met Your Mother. Suffice to say that I am a huge fan of the show and I agree with every awesome thing that comes out of Barney's awesome mouth.

Now that was one sentence with a lot of repetitive awesome's scattered all throughout. It's a good thing Matt Richardson over at MakeZine came up with the AWESOME button (yes, the word deserves to be in all caps) that will input a random synonym of the word "awesome" every time you click it.

To come up with the device, he hacked up a Staples "Easy" button and installed a Teensy microcontroller right inside its very core. He then wrote some code to make it work on his computer.

It sounds pretty awesome brilliant, right? Of course, making an AWESOME button isn't the only thing that you can build with the procedure that Matt followed to make his. You can check out the video below to see how you can build your own custom awesome first-rate button:

If you're curious, here's a list of the words that Matt's AWESOME button randomly generates with every push of the button: brilliant, cool, crack, dope, excellent, exceptional, fabulous, fantastic, fine, first-rate, fly, fresh, incredible, keen, laudable, marvelous, neat, nifty, rad, super, superb, sweet, terrific, tremendous, wicked, wonderful, and worthy.
