MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between:
 
 
It comes ready to use out of the box with everything you see above: MaKey MaKey, Alligator Clips, USB Cable.
 
That's up to you! First, load up a computer program or any webpage (yes that's right, you're surfing the internet to invent). 
 
Let's say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook up the MaKey MaKey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys:  
 
 
Or let's say you Google for an online "Pacman" game and draw a joystick with a pencil (yes, an actual ordinary pencil):
 
 
Then you can play Pacman by touching the drawing with your finger.
 
Or you could load up facebook or gmail and send a message on a custom-made alphabet soup keyboard:
