Makey Makey classic


Makey Makey is an invention kit that turns real world things into keyboard buttons. The condition is that the thing used instead of the button must conduct electricity. Makey The Makey circuit board is connected to a computer with a USB cable. The computer receives power from the circuit board and develops a safe voltage.

The circuit board has a grounding part and contact parts, each of which has a specific meaning on the computer keyboard (four arrow keys, space bar and mouse click, the letters W, A, S, D, F and G can also be controlled on the front). When you hold the ground with one hand and touch the corresponding contact part (eg potato, foil) with the other hand, a circuit appears and Makey Makey sends a command to press the corresponding key on the computer. To “extend” the arms, there are wires with “crocodile ends” and wires, one side of which is connected to the contact part and the other to the object.

There must always be one ground wire that must be held in your hand or against your body.

NB! It is very important to talk to children about electrical safety. Ordinary circuit boards must not be touched by children!
