Makedo needs little introduction; find some cardboard, grab some Makedo tools and get started.The awesomeness of Makedo is that children learn by doing, creating, experimenting, failing and maybe succeeding but that’s not essential. The creations then open the door to imaginative play where the child is protagonist in a hack-able world of their own making.
For families, DIY’ers, birthday gifting, school holidays and playfully persistent home projects.

  • explore the world of playful cardboard construction
  • 120 reusable parts
  • 1-6 makers
  • build small or large creations (like a DIY Christmas Tree)

Turn nearly anything into a game controller or computer key with this cool device! The MaKey MaKey Standard Kit is an Arduino-based device that lets you turn nearly anything into a computer key. Just attach the included alligator clips to food, people, liquids, Play-Doh, or any other somewhat conductive material for a whole new level of interactivity and fun.

Imagine for a moment that you could turn nearly anything into a game controller or keyboard. What would you do? Create a drum kit from oranges? Play Doom with your alphabet soup? With the MaKey MaKey, it’s possible!

The MaKey MaKey uses high resistance switching to detect connections. This allows it to detect a “button press” even if the material is only somewhat conductive. The onboard ATMega32u4 communicates to your computer with the HID (Human Interface Device) protocol allowing it to “act” as a keyboard or a mouse.

The front of the device has 6 inputs arranged like a classic video game controller. These inputs can be attached via alligator clips, soldering to the pads, or any other electrical connection. Need more inputs? There are 12 more inputs on the back, 6 for keyboard keys and 6 for mouse motion, all of which can be accessed by connecting jumpers to the female headers.

Want to change the behavior of your MaKey MaKey? Since it’s Arduino compatible, you can just reprogram it in the Arduino IDE.

Includes MaKey MaKey HID board, mini-USB cable, 6 jumper wires & 7 alligator clips.

We can use them with our state-of-the-art, eco-friendly educational toy kit that will stretch your child’s imagination while allowing them to take part in the joy of recycling. The Super Solar Recycler Kit is powered completely by natural light so you never have to worry about batteries!

In addition to your newly discovered treasures, all you need to get started is included in this kit (solar panel, motor and instruction). Your children can recycle a can of their favorite soft drink to create Street Roller and Walking Robot, create Bottle Yacht, Drummer Robot and Flying Bird using a plastic water bottle, and even turn your old scratched CD’s into the super cool CD Racer.

Let’s have our children play in an eco-friendly way, and learn to harness a new green solar energy source as well as implement the use of recycled materials. OWI invites you to participate in the creation of a sustainable future.
