MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century.

It is a simple circuit board that lets you reprogram the world around you by connecting.

Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet.

Connect up to 18 inputs to the Makey Makey (6 on the front and 12 on the back).

Ever played Mario on Play-Doh or Pianos on Bananas? With Makey Makey, you can turn the whole world into a keyboard! Simply alligator clip two objects to the Make Makey.

For example, you and a banana (or an ice cube, or a kitty cat). When you touch the banana, 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.
