The perfect combination of creativity and general objects comes with one of the most innovative products of the tech world, i.e. Makey-Makey. This invention kit f the 21st century can be used in multiple ways and my people from almost all the fields, be it engineering, artists or an architect.

About its techy stuff, Makey-Makey comprises of ATMega32u4 microcontroller which runs on Arduino Leonardo Firmware. The Human Interface Device lets it communicate with the computer system and transfer inputs by the user. The working behind this one is the biggest thing to be amazed off. When it gets connected to a P.C., the P.C. considers it as an actual keyboard or a mouse and thus how the computer accepts the inputs sent by Makey-Makey. For example, alligator clips two objects to the Makey-Makey board. If we consider an object, say a pencil and you touch the object, a connection gets established between you and the P.C. using Makey-Makey. This way all the information sent by the user reaches the computer. As so its versatility lets it work with all the web pages or programs. If one wants to search something on a website like Google, it can be done with Makey-Makey instead of a keyboard. Just connect the Makey-Makey with an alphabet soup keyboard designed but the user with the P.C. and enjoy typing.

Something that is capable of conducting very less electricity is an ideal choice along with the kit. It can be wet objects like fruits or vegetables, graphite, aluminum foil, etc.
