Makey Makey can be compared to a 21rst century Erector Set. An Erector Set with nuts, bolts, steel strips in various shapes with holes in them allowed the builder to create amazing things. Makey Makey does the same with digital technology. You can build, create, design, prototype amazing things. Their web site shows how an eight year old girl invented and created a virtual piece of wood to be cut with a real knife. Or how about making a piano from bananas? Check it out!
