If you didn’t catch this Hack A Day sneak preview back in May before the Makey-Makey was released for the first time, post Kickstarter, then you’ll enjoy this amusing tin-foil SNES gamepad.
The Makey Makey is friggin’ awesome. Think of just about any project you’d like to make – musical beers, for instance. You can do that with the Makey Makey. It’s a fabulous toy that is the perfect introduction for that inquisitive elementary school student you’re in charge of, and more than enough to get even the most jaded teenager interested in building something cool. It’s more than worth the price of admission, especially when there’s so much you can do with it.
