What Can I Make With the MaKey MaKey?

How good is your imagination? If you can think of it, you can probably make it. Want to use a banana as a keyboard? Go ahead. Want to turn your stairs into a piano, no problem. You can even create your own dance mat if you like.

How Does It Work?

Using an alligator clip, connect two objects, for example a pen and paper to the Space area on your MaKey MaKey. When the pen touches the paper, you are making a connection, completing the circuit and this sends your computer a signal that the space bar has been pressed. Because your computer thinks its a genuine keyboard press, you can use it with any program.

Who Should Use the MaKey MaKey?

Artists, Kids, Educators, Engineers, Hackers, Designers, Inventors, Makers; it was designed for everyone.

What Can I Use With the MaKey Makey?

As long as the material conducts a tiny bit of electricity, it will work.
