Makey Makey is an invention kit that encourages people to find creative ways to interact with their computers, by using everyday objects as replacement for keyboard and mouse.
- The REV 1.2 board is built around the Microchip PIC 18F25K50.
- With the REV 1.2 reprogramming the microcontroller is no longer possible, and the functionality is now limited to keyboard and mouse emulation.
- REV 1.2 also drops the open source nature of the board design, and the new Makey Makey boards no longer can run stand-alone code.
- The newest 2017 version seems to be designed around a GPCE4096UA sound controller.
- Designed around the Atmel 32U4 microcontroller
- The e controller uses all 12 analog input pins on the 32U4 microcontroller in combination with a pull-up resistor array to sense the low voltages returning from conducting materials like fruit or skin
- This microcontroller can easily be used as a USB-HID device and act as a keyboard, gamepad or mouse
- You can also program the official Makey Makey using the Arduino IDE
- Design your own controller with everyday materials like playdough or graphite pencils
- Make musical circuits with liquids, fruits, and low cost office supplies
- Using foil, pennies, and paper clips, invent sensors just like scientists do
- Craft and Code
- Supermarket Circuits
- Build your own Sensors
