New Project November: Amos Blanton's Makey Makey Cat Burglar Alarm

November 01, 2021

Each week in November we will be featuring new projects to try with your Makey Makey invention kit! We'd love to feature your work on our blog and will be sending swag and prizes to community members who share great ideas! 

Check out our first project of the month by Amos Blanton and his family!

Cat Burglar Alarm

Amos's family noticed a strange cat entering their house at night! Instead of closing up the cat door (which wouldn't allow their own family pet her freedom) they invented a cat alarm using Makey Makey and Scratch! 

When the cat door opens, a strategically placed computer alarms with familiar voices for Phoebe, saying "Hi Phoebe!" 

Will the alarm work to keep the strange cat from entering? 

Check out their video to find out!
