About Makey Makey

Makey Makey turns everyday objects into touchpads to use in art, engineering, among many other creations! Makey Makey, together with alligator clips and USB cable, connects to any program and webpage. With two objects connected to the Makey Makey board by the alligator clips, you have made a connection which allows the Makey Makey board to send a keyboard message to a computer. Use any object that can conduct a tiny bit of electricity, such as pencil graphite, finger paint, ketchup and much more! Explore with Makey Makey to create or use any webpage or program!
