Makey Makey Standard Kit, $49.99

The Makey Makey can turn nearly anything into a computer input. All you have to do it take it out of the box, plug it into your computer, and attach a wire onto something somewhat conductive and it becomes a computer key. You can play the national anthem by eating your lunch or Pac-Man with Play-Dough. It can be used by just about anyone with a little imagination and since it’s Arduino based, you can hack it if you ever feel like it. It’s a great way to explore interactivity in a completely new way.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
