MaKey MaKey

Here's one for creative types: An inventor kit that lets people use non-tech materials--literally almost anything you could think of--to control things on their computer. So, for example, you could turn Play-Doh into a game controller or stairs into piano keys. The simple kit comes with a circuit board, alligator clips, and a USB cable. Check out the promo video for MaKey MaKey on Kickstarter. In it, a guy plays “Dance Dance Revolution” by splashing his feet in buckets of water, a messy but hilarious endeavor.
