You can grab your MaKey MaKey here!

The MaKey MaKey turns everyday objects into touchpads and combines them with computer programs and the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in-between.

Bringing MaKey MaKey into the littleBits library enables interactions that weren't before possible in either product. Now, you can trigger your littleBits modules with everyday objects or use littleBits modules to trigger events in your computer, or a combination of both. It makes inventing even easier and more fun.

The module connects to a computer through a micro USB cable and has three MaKey MaKey inputs which are mapped to left arrow, right arrow, and space bar/mouse click (depending on how you set the switch). Each one of these key inputs can be controlled by littleBits modules like motion triggers or light sensors. The MaKey MaKey inputs are also connected to littleBits outputs so you can use a banana to control an oscillator or a glass of water to move a servo motor.
