VIDEO: This is the invention that all emoji lovers have been waiting for

Be warned, things about to get emoji-nal.

Emojis appear to be fast-replacing actual words when it comes to textual interaction between people these days and some in the tech industry appear to be copping onto that fact.

One individual, Tom Scott, has taken it one step further by building a full-size, real-life emoji keyboard that includes over 1,000 individually placed stickers accounting for practically every emoji you can think of.

Understandably enough, not every emoji is going to fit on one keyboard so Scott has spread them all across 14 of them, all of which are hooked up to the one computer.

When Scott says that every emoji is accounted for, he means it.

His revolutionary keyboard includes emojis that don’t even work on phones or computers yet, including a man levitating in a business suit – who hasn’t thought of a situation that can be perfectly described with an emoji like that?

Scott describes his invention as “the most ridiculous thing I've built in a long while” and there doesn’t appear to be any information as to how people can get their hands on it.

Great work on the 'flip the bird' emoji though, we're going to need to see that on our phones real soon.
