MaKey MaKey is a very simple DIY input platform. It lets you use alligator clips to attach conductive objects to a circuit board and makes everyday objects into touch sensitive buttons. MaKey MaKey does not require any drivers or wrappers to function. It simulates as if it were a standard USB keyboard/mouse.
