Makey Makey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention kit for beginners and experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.

How does it work? Simply alligator clip two objects to the Makey Makey board. For example, you and a banana. When you touch the banana, you make a connection, and Makey Makey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer just thinks Makey Makey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). Therefore it works with all programs and webpages, because all programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse input.
Any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity will work. Here are some materials people have used: ketchup, pencil graphite, finger paint, lemons, plants, coins, grandma, silverware, your cat, aluminum foil and hundreds more! Ages 8 to infinity.
