Build an oversized music chest to house your #makeymakey along with wires, parts, supplies, tools #makeymakeymonday

Here’s a tutorial for how to build an oversized music chest to house your MaKey MaKey along with wires, parts, supplies, and tools shared by smalltortoise from Knox Makers:

This is an oversized chest to house a MaKey MaKey, wires, parts, supplies, and small tools. The chest itself can also be a kind of meta MaKey MaKey project as we show in our examples. Our examples can be edited easily in Inkscape for laser cutting or other mediums.

BACKGROUND INFO:

MaKey MaKey is an awesome little electronic inventor’s kit put out by Joylabz with a goal of realizing that everyone is an inventor. You may have seen the infamous banana pianos around featuring the MaKey MaKey….

For ground, we drilled through the side and put a tab of aluminum foil connected to a wire leading to ground on the MaKey.

To use the foil buttons once the chest is assembled, plug in the MaKey and have users hold the side foil tab with their thumb and then hit the foil character with other fingers.

We used characters that were easy to wrap wire around. You might have or even need a better solution for your purposes, especially depending on what your buttons look like. Don’t feel limited to aluminum foil, either. This is just our playful example.

Whether you want to change the buttons or remove the buttons entirely and just want a plain enclosure box, you will need to edit the first .SVG image and delete the text from our design…..
