Basically, MaKey MaKey allows you to create computer controllers from everyday items. All you need is the kit, some crocodile clips and an assortment of objects. Any material that will conduct even a slight electrical current will work as a control surface; from Play-Doh to pencils, from grapes to Grandma.
Simply load up a program – games, instruments, word processors, you name it – and plug in the MaKey MaKey board; then it’s just a case of deciding what does what. You can control Pac-Man from a pencil drawing, or turn a staircase into a piano.
