About the innovation

Let's Invent!

Makey Makey started out as a project that was initiated by two students at MIT Media Lab under the advisorship of Mitch Resnick and is an academic and artistic project. Now it's both a business and a project with thousands of community collaborators, with more joining the ranks of inventors everyday.

We believe that everyone is creative, inventive, and imaginative. We believe that everyone can create the future and change the world. So we have dedicated our lives to making easy-to-use invention kits. 

Craft & Code

Design your own controller with everyday materials like playdough or graphite pencils.

Control your favorite Scratch game while you learn to code.

Supermarket Circuits

Is a banana conductive?

The world is full of conductive objects & materials. Make musical circuits with liquids, fruits, and low cost office supplies.

Build your own sensors

Using foil, pennies, and paper clips, invent sensors just like scientists do.
