How Does it Work?

Alligator Clip two objects to the MaKey MaKey board. For example, you and an apple.

When you touch the apple, 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.

Make + Key = MaKey MaKey!

Works out of the box. Includes: MaKey MaKey, USB Cable, 7 Alligator Clips, 6 Connector Wires, Quick Start Guide, Online Documentation, and comes in a Colorful Retail Box.

The MaKey MaKey is super easy to use. It encourages creative thinking and using lots of different materials for human computer interaction. It also makes computer science concepts concrete by making them hands-on learning experiences. MaKey MaKeys can be reused and can be easily shared while trying out projects, so you don’t need one per student.
