Product Description

Ever played games on Play-Doh or Piano on Bananas? Makey Makey, an invention kit for everyone, is a simple circuit board that lets you reprogram the world by connecting everyday objects to a computer. Rewire the World! Warning: extended use may result in creative confidence.

What is Makey Makey?

Turn the whole world into a keyboard. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners or Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.

Who is Makey Makey For?

Kids, Artists, Educators, Engineers, Inventors, Makers. Really it is for everyone.

How Does it Work?

Alligator Clip two objects to the Makey Makey. For example, you and a banana (or an ice cube, or a kitty cat). When you touch the banana, the computer just thinks a keyboard key is being pressed, so you can type a letter, jump in a video game, take a picture, or play some music.

What materials work with Makey Makey?

Ketchup, Pencil Graphite, Finger Paint, Fruits, Plants, Coins, Your Grandma, Silverware, Anything that is Wet, Pets, Aluminum, Rain, and hundreds more. Really any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity.

What can I create?

Make a banana piano, play games on a play dough game pad, take a selfie of your cat every time she drinks water. How? First, load up a computer program or any webpage. Let's say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook the Makey Makey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys. Hundreds more of examples can be found at MakeyMakey.com

What comes in the box?
1 Makey Makey, 7 Alligator Cables, USB Cord, 6 Connector Wires, 1 Tin Case, Stickers, and Instructions

Features

  • Connect the world around you to your computer! Setup takes just seconds. Just plug, clip, and play!
  • Turn everyday objects like bananas into touchpads! Find a free virtual piano from the web. Instead of using your keyboard to play the piano, connect the keys on the Makey Makey to bananas. The bananas then become your piano keys!
  • 1000s of possibilities! Draw your own game controller! Dance like never before! Make life-size game controllers you can jump on! When your foot touches water in a tub, or aluminum foil on the floor, you can play a dancing game or make your character jump!
  • No programing knowledge needed. Plays nice with Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. No software to install. Connects by USB.
