What is MaKey MaKey?

The MaKey MaKey is a simple Invention Kit for the 21st century, suitable for beginners and experts doing art, engineering and everything in between. It is a simple circuit board that lets you reprogram the world by connecting everyday objects to a computer. First setup takes seconds. Start out easy with a banana piano. Then make game controllers, musical instruments and inventions. Advance to female headers and multi-key remapping up to 18 keys.

 

How does it work?

With MaKey MaKey, you can turn the whole world into a keyboard! Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. Simply alligator clip two objects to the MaKey MaKey board. For example, you and a banana (or an apple, or an ice cube, or a kitty cat). When you touch the banana, you make a connection, and MaKey MaKey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer just thinks MaKey MaKey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). Therefore, it works with all programs and webpages, because all programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse input.
Make + Key = MaKey MaKey!
