Step 1: Coding Project

This is the story of a puppet created to use Makey Makey but you can also use the arrows on your keyboard: UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT (UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT ARROW).

The Scratch Project is here.

Step 2: QR Code

Create the QR Code with RCODE MONKEY.

You can also add an image like the one you see.

Step 3: Storytelling

Recording of the story made with Scratch.

Step 4: The Instructables Puppet Video

How the electronic model of the story works and how you can tell it.

Step 5: Makey Makey Working

Here is the final product with Makey Makey!

Connect the terminals to the aluminum sheet that you have to wrap in the arrow-shaped pexiglass cutouts to execute the programmed scripts and navigate through the story that will be started by placing the cup on the "button" that corresponds to the mouse click (the rectangular cutout ).


Collega i morsetti al foglio di alluminio che devi avvolgere nel ritagli di pexiglass a forma di freccia per eseguire gli script programmati e navigare durante la storia che sarà avviata poggiando la tazza sul "bottone" che corrisponde al click del mouse (il ritaglio di forma rettangolare).

    This puppet is so cute! On the inside of your puppet where you have the movable puppet inside with brass fasteners, you could also make those connections work with Makey Makey! Great work!
