Once your buttons are all wired up, you are ready to plug and play with our new apps! (Or you can code your own project in Scratch!)
To celebrate the launch of our new Craft + Code Booster Kit and Get Up + Go Booster Kit, we have also launched new apps that will let you have a full plug-and-play Makey Makey experience with any invention!
The new Makey Makey Piano App is the culmination of years of learning and play at JoyLabz. We took our tried-and-true piano app that was created when Makey Makey was first introduced, and we took it up a level. The new Piano App has a number of cool features we think you'll like!
We designed the new Piano App to give you more flexibility when building musical instruments with the Makey Makey. We wanted an app that still works with Makey Makey right out of the box and that inspires you to jam out and to create an entire band of Makey Makey instruments.
We just made designing your own musical instrument even easier!
One of our favorite Makey Makey projects is this exit ticket / data collector project. Now you can focus on building your physical device and use our new Makey Makey Counter App for plug-and-play functionality right away!
Need more buttons? Want to use different inputs? No problem! Just adjust the sliders in the control panel to make the Counter App do what you need.
Want to make a Jeopardy-style quiz show for your classroom or maybe have a trivia night at home? With our new Buzzer App, you can easily build your own custom switches. Our app does all the work to see who buzzed in first!.
This app is designed to emulate a game show style buzz-in system. The “host” or leader of a game can “start” a session and then each individual participant can “buzz-in” by pressing the key assigned to them.
Just connect each button to the defined key for that participant in the Buzzer App and start buzzing in! Now you can be the next contestant in your own game show.
