Building the Keyboard from TRON Legacy with Web Technologies

I recently re-watched TRON: Legacy, and after the scene where Sam types a few Unix commands on a virtual keyboard, I decided I had to try one out for myself. In addition to wanting to see what it was like to use a virtual keyboard, I also wanted to see if I could build it entirely with web technologies. I discovered I was able to do everything I wanted — except type particularly well.

Below is an explanation of the project (along with some conclusions on virtual keyboards in general). All the source code for the project is available on GitHub.
