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.
The board features preloaded key maps including the WASDFG keys for controlling computer games, especially useful when designing your own. There are mouse movement and click functions to help move the cursor in a desktop environment.
