Makey Makey

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.

That got your attention, didn't it?
