If you enjoy creating and inventing new things you maybe interested in a new device called Makey Makey GO, that has been specifically designed to enable you to create gizmos and gadgets on the go where ever you might be.
Makey Makey GO is the creation of Jay Silver and team and consists of a USB port and a wire connector together with sensors that can be used to create buttons or triggers, watch the video below.
The Makey Makey GO project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $10,000 in pledges to go into manufacture, and has already raised over $43,000 with 58 days remaining thanks to over 900 backers.
“Small enough to fit on your keychain, book bag, or bracelet, Makey Makey GO turns everyday objects into touchpads and combines them with the internet. It’s a simple tool-slash-toy that allows beginners and experts to make countless art, music, engineering, and science projects. It comes ready to use out of the box with no setup and no installations. Just plug and play.
By practicing inventing everywhere with Makey Makey GO you start to gain invention literacy—you become able to “read” inventions (understand others’ inventions), and you become able to “write” inventions (make your own inventions). As with ordinary reading and writing, invention literacy is invaluable even if you never become a professional inventor.
What Can I Make? That’s up to you! The main thing is that Makey Makey GO turns the world into a giant construction kit—because world-changing ideas don’t always happen in a lab or at school. Sometimes they happen in the shower, on the playground, flying a kite, or sitting under an apple tree.”
So if you think Makey Makey GO is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Makey Makey GO become a reality with pledges starting from just $19.
