Notes:
Just imagine becoming a technological genius: turn alphabet soup noodles into a functioning keyboard, control your video games using a controller you draw with pencil, or play piano just by dancing on the stairs. Now, you can have the tools to do just that! The Makey Makey is a brilliantly simple way of getting anyone (young or old) excited about electronics. It contains three basic elements: the Makey Makey circuit board; alligator clips, to connect the board to everyday objects; and a USB cable, to connect with any computer. That combination allows you to transform almost anything into a "key" that tells your computer what to do, whether that's typing a letter or controlling a game character.
Loanable and holdable only for Saskatoon Public Library Patrons.
Computer requirements: A computer (Windows, Mac, OS X or Linux) with an available USB slot and internet connection.
Materials needed: Button material (e.g. fruit, Play-Doh, tin foil, copper tape, a friend).
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.
