I’ve noticed that many people have assumed that you can only setup 6 keys total, but if you pay attention to the female headers on the reverse of the board you’ll notice that can hook up many more! From the FAQ:
How many keys can be pressed at once with a Makey Makey?
Makey Makey can press as many keys as your keyboard allows at once, which is 6. You can use up to 18 in a session, but only 6 can be held down simultaneously.
Here’s the rest of the FAQ.
