20 fun and inventive Makey Makey projects for Makers from beginner to expert

This hands-on guide is filled with DIY projects that show readers, step-by-step, how to start creating and making cool inventions with the Makey Makey invention kit. Each project features easy-to-follow, fully-illustrated instructions and detailed photographs of the finished gadget. Readers will see how to apply these skills and start building their own Makey Makey projects.

20 Makey Makey Projects for the Evil Genius starts off with very approachable introductory projects, making it a great starting point for beginners. It then builds to more challenging projects, allowing more experienced users to go further by incorporating technologies like Raspberry Pi, Processing and Scratch programming, 3D Printing, and creating wearable electronics with Makey Makey. Projects are divided into four categories: "Fun and Games," Interactive," Hacks and Pranks," and "Makey Makey Go."

. No prior programming or technical experience is required . Basic enough for beginners, but challenging enough for advanced makers . Written by two educators who believe in fostering creative innovation for all
