What is Makey Makey?

Just attach the alligator cables into the holes on the Makey Makey and any material that can conduct a little electricity. With the MaKey MaKey, you can replace your space key with a banana, use play-doh to move and click your mouse. There are hundreds of materials that you could use :- plants, coins, most foods, aluminium foil, pencil graphite, anything that is wet etc...

Makey Makey is a small two sided circuit board. It is a device that lets you turn nearly anything into a computer key. You can turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet.
