A new Kickstarter project called MaKey Makey, allows you to create an input device from just about anything you can think of. Including pales of water, play-doh, fruit and even pencil drawings.
MaKey MaKay has been designed and created by Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum, two MIT Media Lab final-year PhD students. Watch the wonderful device in action after the jump.
The MaKey MaKey has been created using an Arduino Uno, and connects to a computer via a USB connection. Using a number of different crocodile clips you can easily create input devices without the need for any programming or soldering.
“Let’s say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook up the MaKey MaKey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys”
MaKey MaKay is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think it is something you could benefit from, jump over to the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help MaKey MaKay become a reality.
