Product Description

Turn the whole world into a keyboard. What's MaKey MaKey? Make + Key = MaKey MaKey. MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. An Invention Kit for Everyone. Use your wildest imagination and turn everyday objects into touch pads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners or Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between. What Can I Make? That's up to you. 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 up the MaKey MaKey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys or let's say you Google for an online Pac man game and draw a joystick with a pencil. You can play Pac man by touching the drawing. Or you could load up face book or Gmail and send a message on a custom-made alphabet-soup keyboard. How Does it Work? Alligator Clip two objects to the MaKey MaKey board. For example, you and an apple. When you touch the apple, 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 web pages, because all programs and web pages take keyboard and mouse input. Who is MaKey MaKey For? Artists, Kids, Educators, Engineers, Designers, Inventors, Makers. Really it is for everyone. What materials work with MaKey Makey? Any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity will work including Ketchup, Pencil Graphite, Finger Paint, Lemons, etc. Other materials that work great: Plants, Coins, Your Grandma, Silverware, Anything that is Wet, Most Foods, Cats and Dogs, Aluminum Foil, Rain, and hundreds more.

I can't recommend the MaKey MaKey enough. It is a brilliant, open ended, tool kit which allows endless ways to connect your computer to your environment. It continually inspires you to imagine -> build -> rebuld -> and imagine again. Awesome for kids of all ages, but this would have changed my life when I was 13. Perfect for any young person that has a creative spark that needs to be stoked.

At my University I gave this to students. They had so much fun that, well, I'm not getting it back anytime soon. The beauty of this is it's not some prepackaged toy that limits imagination, it opens the imagination. There is more fun and learning in this tiny rectangle than a week ay Disney World.

This is an amazing tool for the classroom! Students don't even realize they're practicing the problems skills in order to complete the circuits needed to make it work.

Makey Makey is awesome! You don't have to know sophisticated coding, circuitry, or arduino. Both kids and adults can push the limits of the kit to make cool things happen with a simple touch of a finger. Artists can also explore making complex objects with uncommon materials by researching the conducive properties of media.

My son has really enjoyed this but commented that it is difficult to get a circuit going with the alligator clips.
