Johns Hopkins University Student Invents Emokeys: Redefining Emoji Input in Online Conversations

By: PRLog

BALTIMORE - Aug. 4, 2023 - PRLog -- Taliyah Huang, a second-year biomedical engineering student at Johns Hopkins University, recently announced Emokeys, a 3D-printed gadget she designed and built herself that offers a new way to input emoji. Currently, emoji can only be inputted by a virtual keyboard displayed on-screen, with no physical alternative.

"It's a mechanical keyboard for emoji, with unlimited possibilities," says Taliyah. "And, there's Discord mode, where custom emotes can be summoned by each mini display."

Emokeys is not for sale but was created as a one-of-a-kind technology, where the CAD, code, and circuit diagram build files are open source online to inspire other young people about engineering and innovation. For more information, please see the Youtube video produced by Taliyah here. With the introduction of Emokeys, we can expect a new generation of keyboards that facilitate emoji to become even more widespread in online communication.

About Taliyah Engineering: Taliyah Engineering is a Youtube channel started by Taliyah Huang in January 2023, where she shares with the world some of the inventions she creates through various long and short-form content that explain her design and thinking process. Taliyah and her creations have been featured on the Official Arduino Twitter, Gizmodo,, Hackaday, and more, and has been interviewed and published with the World Journal, Baodao Radio, and Radio Taiwan International.
