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.
Kids, Artists, Educators, Engineers, Inventors, Makers. Really it is for everyone.
“If your child’s teacher was using the Makey Makey in her classroom, consider yourself unbelievably lucky.”
"My favorite thing. That is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. The coolest thing ever."
The Today Show
"A great tool to use with your students. . . Couple this with a program the student created in Scratch or any other coding environment and you have a very unique maker/coding solution."
Make a banana piano, play Mario 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.
