Is this "botting"?

So i have this thing called a "MaKey MaKey" which can turn conductive objects into a button. (Ex. I can hook up the wires to a banana, press the banana, and it would left click.) If I hooked this up to a sheet of tin foil and just tapped it with my fingers instead of clicking with the mouse, would this been seen as "botting?" I've browsed some forums and sometimes I see people talking about getting banned for having any kinds of third-party programs.

TLDR: Should I try to use this "third party program" in runescape to making clicking easier on me (id still do it manually) or is it not worth even trying?

Strictly speaking as long as your person is the one pushing your tin foil paper it would not be botting. However this sounds so far fetched and convoluted that I would strongly suggest you don't do this because who knows how and what is going to get picked up as a click.

You would be better off getting an old trackball mouse and remove the trackball so you don't move the cursor and just use that for clicking.

Or you can put a piece of tape under the bottom of any modern mouse to do the same thing.

The basic rule of thumb is:

If one action by you = more than one input or action into the game, then it's macroing/botting.

HOWEVER

There's no telling what Jagex's macro detection systems will pick up on, so you're running a risk with any third party program.

You may as well not proceed with your plan, since you have doubts.

If you have doubts, don't continue. No one outside Jagex really knows what triggers the anti-bot system.

Those are not allowed.

Remapping keys to other keys, or in this case, fruit is no problem. You could use an arduino to do that. It can generate any digital or analog output when there's an input, so you can remap a light switch to click instead.

Someone made a costum-fit "controller" using an arduino for a teenager who had limited control of his body and showed spastic behaviour. The "controller" was actually a bunch of buttons near the knees and feet of the person which where easier to press than keyboard keys, and movement of the character in the game (GTA V) was done by touching tin foil at the inside of a box-like structure to prevent the hands from getting out and not being able to get them to the foil again.
