Design it Yourself Makey Makey Hardware with the Click Clack Backpack from Patchr

November 04, 2022

Makey Makey & Patchr proudly bring you the fully customizable four-key keyboard: The Click Clack Backpack. 

Using the Patchr online hardware design tools you’ll learn how to design a custom printed circuit board that works with your Makey Makey v1.4+. You decide what the shape of the board is, where the keys are located, and what custom silkscreen graphics and art will personalize your design.

Dreaming of a custom keyboard that looks like a stegosaurus? With the Click Clack Backpack you can make it happen! 

The Click Clack Backpack is a custom, four-key mechanical keyboard that connects to the Makey Makey v1.4+ and is limited only by your own imagination. Using the Patchr online hardware design tools, you can make a custom dinosaur shaped PCB, place the mechanical keys where you want spikes, and add some scaly graphics to really sell your dino keyboard. 

Once you’re done designing, hit print and the team at Patchr will mail you your custom board and all the components you need to assemble it. Soldering is required, but that’s part of the fun.
