Makey Makey

Michael playing Pac-Man using a Makey MakeyMember Renee and her son Michael put together a Makey Makey project. The kit allows you to interface a computer with any electrically conducting material. So touching the material completes a circuit. I think the kit on Make’s website shows the kit hooked up to a set of bananas and being used to play music. Here Renee and Michael hooked the system up to some play-doh we stole (borrowed) from the kids area. And Michael is playing Pac-Man by pressing on the different Play-Doh pads to move left, right, up and down. Looked like fun to me and is a great way to play with circuit boards and computer interfaces.
