Makey Makey Frankenstein's Monster

This 3D printed Frankenstein's Monster was wired up using the Makey Makey during the Makerspace 2018 Frankenweek celebration. By tapping the citrus brain, students could control a slideshow on the laptop of Frankenstein sounds and video clips.

Makey Makey

Makey Makey: An Invention Kit for Everyone, is an electronic invention tool and toy that allows users to connect everyday objects to computer programs.[1] Using a circuit board, alligator clips, and a USB cable, the toy uses closed loop electrical signals to send the computer either a keyboard stroke or mouse click signal. This function allows the Makey Makey to work with any computer program or webpage since all computer programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse click inputs.  ( this is from Wikipedia)   Link to:  https://www.makeymakey.com/
