Ready to incorporate a carrot, your sunglasses, or great-grandma into your littleBits creations? The Makey Makey Bit turns everyday conductive objects (like bananas) into triggers that control your circuit and even your computer. You can connect the Makey Makey Bit to these objects using the included alligator clips.
How It Works:
Make a touchpad out of ANYTHING by attaching alligator clips (4 are included!) to the Makey Makey Bit. For example: you and a banana. When you touch the banana, you complete the connection, and the Makey Makey Bit sends a signal to either your computer (move cursor left or right) or to your Bits (flash an LED or turn a motor). Scroll right to see the 3 interactions you can make!
TOUCH TO BIT
Trigger your Bits with any conductive object. Touch a banana to turn on an LED, splash water to move a servo motor, or turn a watermelon into a bass drum!
BIT TO COMPUTER
Use regular Bits, like sensors and triggers, to control the cursors on your computor. Make a whimsical photobooth with your computer by using the sound trigger. Take pictures with a clap, sneeze–anything that makes sound.
TOUCH TO COMPUTER
Use any object that can hold electricity, like oranges, foil, or people, to control the cursors on your computer.
