MakeyMakey: An invention kit for everyone

Tue May 15, 2012 8:38 am

I just saw this at Kickstarter.com:

It looks like a fun way to encourage interactive learning if it works with a Pi.

Wow cool!
Since it is just a USB HID device, it will work on a Pi.

MIT wins again! I love this stuff.

Can you imagine rocking up to classroom full of schoolkids with a raspi and a makey makey?

I've punted a pledge on this one too.

May sound strange, but I've been waiting for something to inspire me to buy a RPi. It's not that I couldn't think of things to do with it, just that I was stumped as to where to start.

The Makey Makey is where I plan to start!

This is the perfect companion for the Pi, and I can think of heaps of things to use this little controller for.

My son (age 9) had the idea to link the makey makey to the pi at a lecture on Wednesday night and won a raspberry Pi :-)

He wants to link the makey makey to his bedroom and control it all from his tshirt.

Can't wait to get to two linked together.
