Questions / Re: More than 6 keys ?
« Last post by Liam on February 21, 2017, 12:35:08 PM »
Hey Sam,

Oh sure - well that's all done on the software end. 
Makey Makey has 18 keys it can output.  You just have to set up your joystick to send different keystrokes in different directions, then on the software end you use those keystrokes to move different angles.  Maybe 'W' is straight forward 0º.  Maybe 'J' is 10º to the right, 'H' is 10º degrees to the left. 

Here's a scratch program that kind of illustrates what I mean.

If this is for a pre-existing game, you might be able to change the controls in the game's settings.

Hope this helps!

Good luck,

OK, thank you for the answer, but my question was about how to make a joystick which can have the sensitivity of a modern joystick.
In modern videogames, we can have a big range of directions, between "up" and "right", for example. And not only "up" , "right" and "up"+"right".

I wonder if there's a way to do that with makey makey. It seems to be difficult...

Hey MakeyFra,

I'm sorry to say that no, you can't remap modifier keys with Makey Makey.

Hey Nina,

Oh sure!  Yeah that's totally possible.

One way to do it is with Scratch

You could make a block like this below.

The painting could be done with conductive ink.

Hope that helps!

Hey tifreita,

Welcome to the forums!

Wow - that is an awesome idea.
I haven't heard of anyone doing that - it should totally work though!

Have you made any progress on this project?

Oh sure!  You should be able to control a small motor with the back of the Makey Makey. . .

Try these instructions here

Does that help?

Hey Sam,

Totally!  There are lots of programs for things like that. . .
The first thing that comes to mind is the Makey Makey Monome

Is that the kid of thing you're thinking of?

Hey Sam,

Oh sure - yeah there are lots of ways to make joysticks with Makey Makey.
Here's a video with a bunch of different examples

Did you figure something out?
Questions / Makey Makey Go + Standard Kit + Notebook
« Last post by Goon Gumpas on December 06, 2016, 12:50:10 PM »
Hello everyone! My query is the following: Is it possible to connect the Makey Makey "standard" kit with the "Go" model, so that the ground connection is replaced by the computer (connected to Makey Makey Go)?

The sequence would be as follows:

Standard Kit -> Makey Makey Go -> Notebook (As if it were the ground connection)

I attached a graph to try to explain my query better.
Show and Tell / Chaos at the Museum! #CaosBA

My name is Fermin Enrique Ramirez, I write on behalf of the project
Sonoteca Bahía Blanca to share an experience in which we successfully
use Makey Makey.

We recently participated in "Chaos at the Museum" (#CaosBA), a
meeting-workshop that sought to reflect "on the civic responsibilities
of museums as public spaces, their potential as generators of an
inclusive community and as contributors to development of a diverse

The meeting, organized by the TyPA Foundation in conjunction with the
University of California Davis, the University of Washington and the
Central Saint Martins School of Arts at the University of London, was
held at the Museum of the City of Buenos Aires and brought together 150
Participants from 15 countries over four intense days.

Apart from the lectures, we were divided into teams in order to approach
different spaces of the Historical Center of Buenos Aires and to propose
museum practices in the streets. Our project comprised part of Team #3,
which was dedicated to the "Apple of Lights", historic block of the
Autonomous City of Buenos Aires in which are located the National
College of Buenos Aires, the Church of San Ignacio, the old building of
the University of Buenos Aires, the Hall of the Former Board of
Representatives, and the former Jesuit Provinces and Residencies among
other buildings.

We concentrated our work on what was the first seat of the Public
Library of Buenos Aires (corner of streets Peru and Moreno). In a few
hours we designed a device / project that basically had a timeline, a
map of emotions, photos, info Historical and a panel in which you could
share your first readings. My participation in the team was through the
installation of a netbook connected to a Makey Makey plate and an apple,
which when played allowed to listen to a podcast with stories of
neighbors of the place that we previously recorded and edited. In this
way, passers-by of all ages could access historical information of the
place in multiple formats (cartographic, photographic, timeline and

Then I send you some links of interest and... thank you so much for
bringing Makey Makey to the world!
