Instead of usb connection to a computer..why not a wifi/bluetooth/infrared connection..

There's a few ways to get different kinds of wireless connections using something that can also provide power to the MaKey through USB. I would pay a little extra for one, it would also be cool to see a later version with multiple options (a kit vs a fully assembled).

I'd love to see a wireless add-on for the MaKey MaKey too! I know some people have used Bluetooth, though I understand there is a small amount of latency caused by the connection.

This seems to be the cheapest Bluetooth transceiver for the Maker community. Somehow create an external power supply and you're golden!

Hey.....I just made a wireless Makey Makey using Bluetooth. It is a crude prototype. Will post more updates when the next version is ready.
