Joyd lets you execute commands via a joystick or joypad attached to your computer. You can bind commands to single buttons. movements of your stick, or combinations of the two. One simple possibility would be to reboot when your keyboard is hung. It can use any device supported by the Linux Joystick Driver. You can test the joystick status in your own shell scripts by using helper applications.
