As an engineer, I just have to do a post about Makey Makey. I haven’t ordered one yet, but it’s on my short list. I realize that this lies a little outside the boundary of what I was planning to post on this site, and I promise not to bombard you all with product posts, but this one deserves a little extra consideration. Oh, and I found out about it over on Educade where you can find lesson plans on what to do with a Makey Makey. As if it’s not just a thousand projects waiting to happen all on its own. Makey Makey is a an invention kit that consists of a small circuit board and some alligator clips. With these simple tools, you can turn anything into a keyboard (musical or computer). Anything. Just watch the video and see. Great for all ages. Costs 50 bucks.
