Computers are going bananas! Use
#makeymakey to practice invention literacy and connect the world to your computer.
FIRST – you have to check out Makey Makey in action HERE before you continue reading!
Done? OK, good. Now you see why it’s a little hard to discuss what Makey Makey is without being able to see it in action. Brooke and I recently attended a Maker’s Mania event at a local high school and we were both drawn to the Makey Makey table. In fact, Brooke only wanted to stay there and play. She was able to play music just by pressing the different sensors and she recorded her voice so she could create her own loops. It. Was. So. Cool! So cool, in fact, we wanted one for home…..and thus this review!
This it THE original Makey Makey Classic – Named one of Consumer Reports’ “Best Tech Toys of 2014″, “Best of Toy Fair 2014” by Popular Science, and a finalist for Toy of the Year 2016. Makes STEM Education fun! Start out easy with a banana piano. First setup takes seconds. Then make game controllers, musical instruments, and countless inventions. Advance to additional inputs and multi-key remapping up to 18 keys. Ages 8 to infinity. Need I say more?!?! GET ONE!
