3rd gen infrared text assistant device

Just a short and simple project idea: How about some device with an infrared LED and a decent keyboard interface that can simplify the process of entering text? Based on an ESP8266 WiFi enabled microcontroller similar to this guide we could have a web interface where you can enter text to be automatically converted to the right button presses and possibly the rest of the remote for less than 10€/USD hardware cost.

Has anyone of you ever considered/done this?

Leave a like if you are interested, then I will do it as an intermediate project, should be pretty simple.
