This is a super powerful little circuit when playing an online game that logs you out of the game after not sensing any key strokes for a minute or two. Being I put this circuit in Wii shaped mint tin I called it the Wii Wand of Power.
It’s just a simple timing circuit made of discreet elements that engages a reed relay ever 25 sec. This relay in turn closes a circuit in my keyboard for the left arrow key. Being this external circuit is self powered I can simply turn it on when I want a game or application to think I’m at my computer when I’m not. I know there are software hacks that can do this and I did try a lot of them but this particular on line game I play had a way to block such software hacks. I had to go old school, which is not hard for an old guy, and do it with hardware.
