Next up is something pretty special, how often have your kids asked "Can I turn these bananas into a keyboard please" - you hear that one all the time I bet... Lucky for everyone we've got the Makey Makey at PB Tech!

How does it work you ask? Well, Makey Makey allows you to turn everyday objects into touch controls for a PC or Mac. First use the alligator clips to attach objects to the Makey Makey board, like a banana. Then, when you touch the banana, you make a connection, and Makey Makey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer will just think Makey Makey is a regular keyboard (or mouse) so it works with all programs and web pages, basically anything which makes use of a keyboard or mouse input.

Start making some fun today and get yourself the Makey Makey at PB Tech!
