An Invention Kit For Anyone

Just imagine becoming a technological genius: turn alphabet soup noodles into a functioning keyboard, control your video games using a controller you draw with pencil, or play piano just by dancing on the stairs.

Now, you can have the tools to do just that! The MaKey MaKey is a brilliantly simple way of getting anyone (young or old) excited about electronics. It contains three basic elements: the Makey Makey circuit board; alligator clips, to connect the board to everyday objects; and a USB cable, to connect with any computer. That combination allows you to transform almost anything into a "key" that tells your computer what to do, whether that's typing a letter or controlling a game character.

The MaKey MaKey board requires no special tools, and is simple enough for children to use. But, also built in are additional capabilities – such as expanded keyboard ports and arduino compatibility – allowing users to invent even more elaborate devices as your experience grows.
